About us

Who we are

Our mission is to help everyone on their journey of Understanding College Athletics™. We also help guide high school student-athletes by offering a JV and Varsity Membership that is specifically designed to help organize and understand college athletics and the college recruiting process. Our full database contains thousands of college coach ratings and reviews which provide first-hand accounts of the coaches, schools, and programs. For high school student-athletes, we're here to help you learn one story at a time. For college student-athletes, rate your coach to help out the upcoming generation of student-athletes.

Knowledge is power, and our goal is to give you all the information that you need to make the right choices when dealing with your college search. Let us help you understand what college coaches are looking for in their athletes. We will help to educate you on NCAA rules, recruiting processes, academic guidelines, scholarships, and athlete wellness. You will receive advice from coaches, professional athletes, parents, current and former college athletes, and even Olympians. Our regular articles over at The Huddle will help further your knowledge about college athletics.

For many families, the most challenging part of the recruiting process is understanding how college coaches recruit and evaluate, as well as what draws each coach to the student-athletes that interest them. To better explain the college recruiting process, it's helpful to look at it from a coach's perspective. We get our information directly from interviews with head coaches, and they explain what exactly they are looking for from their athletes.
