PLANO, TX – September, 2016 – Academy Select Sun Devils Baseball Club and BaseballRecruits have reached an agreement on a club integration, it was announced today. As part of the agreement, Academy Select Sun Devils staff and players will receive access to the innovative suite of tools provided by the recruiting platform. “I was lucky to have someone I know that uses the platform,” said Linty Ingram, Director and Coach. “and that person spoke so highly of SportsRecruits that I could not deny this opportunity to the athletes in our club.” "I am excited for our athletes to have a platform set up to help guide them through the recruiting process. It will also help our coaches get the information about their players out to the colleges that fit the players' skill levels."

"This platform puts the player in charge of his recruiting efforts. College coaches hear directly from the player, not from a so-called recruiting service."

Guided Autonomy

Academy Select Sun Devils found a solution which doubly inspires and empowers players. Ingram recognizes the necessity to involve a player in his recruiting process, not exclude him from it. “The main attraction to me is, this is NOT a recruiting service," said Linty Ingram about the misconception. "This platform puts the player in charge of his recruiting efforts. College coaches hear directly from the player and not from a so-called recruiting service.” Compare this with the traditional recruiting service model, in which players relinquish control of their recruiting processes to a third party. "The players and their coaches will be able to track communication, with a little guidance from the coaches when necessary." Guidance can take the form of a coach recommending schools to a player. Armed with his coach's encouragement, the player can contact a college with confidence. At the end of the day, it's the player that takes initiative. But it's not just players that benefit. “I think it will make streaming information to the many coaches that I am in communication with much easier,” said Ingram. “All of the information will be readily available to me to pass on to the colleges that inquire about my players. A complete profile will make a greater impact than just sending a roster."
