The key in getting recruited by colleges is gaining exposure, but the process of marketing yourself to coaches nationwide can be overwhelming. That's where Webletes.com steps in. Created for potential recruits, the site gives high school and junior college athletes the chance to showcase their talents by enabling them to post personal videos, clips and articles with online profiles, which are viewable by coaches.
High School Combine Camp Tour
In an effort to provide even more assistance in the recruiting process, Webletes.com has announced tour dates for its first High School Combine Camp Tour, covering Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Georgia.
Designed to offer instruction to high school football players on how to maximize their game, the camp will be run by former college coaches, players and trainers, all of whom will be on hand to tweak form and offer tips that help athletes improve their time and performance in essential skill drills.
To help recruits get noticed, Webletes.com will also shoot video of each attendee performing the 40-Yard Dash, Shuttle, Vertical Jump and Broad Jump. The resulting clips will be added to individual athlete profiles on the camp's website, enabling college coaches to search by position.
Camp creator Tim Curran says, "This is an opportunity for athletes to gain exposure to schools nationwide that could potentially not have been possibilities for them."
Information about the event and profiles will be sent to Webletes.com's database of Division I, II and III coaches. Videos will be sent directly to schools such as:
- University of Kentucky
- Ball State University
- University of Cincinnati
- Miami University
- Bowling Green State University
- University of Toledo
- Ashland College
- Wayne State University
- University of Notre Dame
- Manchester College
Unlike other camps and combines, which usually rank players based on performance, Webletes.com promises a "no ranking system," so when a coach visits the site, he or she will find no prejudgements on athletes' abilities. "They'll see you for you and what you can do only," Curran says.
