Understanding College Athletics

About us

Who we are

Our mission is to educate on the recruiting process and college athletics through first-hand information and experiences. Some topics we cover include; mental health, injuries, sportsmanship, how to deal with coaches, redshirting, when to contact coaches, NCAA rules and regulations and all things college sports. This year we provided you with advice from head coaches, pro athletes, Olympians, and other former college athletes on what it takes to be successful on and off the field. We also help guide and educate high school student-athletes on step-by-step details of the college recruiting process. Our free database contains thousands of college coach ratings and reviews, providing first-hand accounts of coaches, schools, and programs that cannot be found anywhere else.

Our Values

Educational

Selecting a college athletics program to join for the next 4 years is a huge choice. Like any other big decision, it is best to do extensive research and utilize any and all resources at your disposal. We’ve done our best to bring as much first-hand information as possible to the table to help enable you to make the best decision for you.

Transparent

Take a look into what current and former athletes have said about their collegiate experiences: the good, the bad, and everything in between. The goal is to give you an open and honest look into the world of college athletics from the viewpoint of those who know it best, the student-athletes themselves.
