When it comes to finding collegiate athletic opportunities, many athletes and their families can be overwhelmed by the lack of information about the recruiting process and the amount of time required to achieve success.
NCSA helped make the recruiting process a positive one for the Butner family from the very beginning. "NCSA kept me organized and on track of the recruiting process. My highlight video would not have been seen by as many coaches and I doubt I would have ended up at Methodist," said Brandon. Through their online tools, NCSA was able to introduce college coaches to Brandon's athletic ability and also helped him stay on track when it came to actively communicating with coaches.
Brandon Butner explains his experience, "The recruiting process was more like running a miniature business. I couldn't believe how much time and effort I spent on this process but it was worth it in the long run." Brandon received offers from several different schools and was able to narrow his decision down with NCSA helping him to stay in touch with those college coaches. After the Forbush High School standout visited Methodist University he immediately knew it was the all around best fit...academically, financially and athletically.
The senior's success story is a primary example of what can be achieved by many student athletes with the same hard work and dedication.
The process should begin as early as the freshman year of a student athlete's high school career. Brandon's one piece of advice to future recruits, "Work hard all year not just during the season. Start your recruiting process early and stay in front of as many coaches and schools as you possibly can, but most importantly, have fun with the experience."
