One of the most underrated aspects of recruiting is the role that the athlete plays in the process. Nothing will ever do more for a potential prospect than great play that results in great film. Even when the film is great, there are still steps that the athlete can take to help college coaches find them. Social media can be vital to your potential recruitment. In particular, Twitter can play a major role in marketing yourself to potential recruiters.
Every athlete that may want to play at the next level needs a well-monitored Twitter account. Recruits have to be diligent about the brand that they build on social media. Prospects need to be conscious of every tweet, repeat, and like. Athletes should think of their Twitter as a commercial for who they are as a young man.
Colleges want to recruit outstanding players, but they have to recruit young men that will represent their program in a positive way. Aside from monitoring what you post, there are other vital steps to making the most of your social media presence. Setting up your social media profile can go a long way in making yourself marketable to college coaches. You can find information on how to set up your profile using this LINK.
