The Audit

The Audit

Transparency is a big part of what we do here at Woods Recruiting.

Questionnaire

Transparency

We want the student-athlete and the parent to know exactly what we’re doing every step of the way.

When we contact college programs the student-athlete and parent will receive what we call is an Audit. In one column is the list all the college programs that were contacted and the date they were contacted.  If there was a response or reply by a college coach that information will be sent to the student-athlete and the parent right away.

Woods Recruiting keeps a record of everything we do. It’s important for us to understand how effective we are in contacting college coaches and keeping are record of what’s been done is important to us and the student-athletes.

Sometimes college programs are interested and sometimes they’re not and it’s important for us to know that so we do not keep reaching out to those college programs that do not have an interest in that student-athlete.

In some situations the college program may be done with recruiting so they’re not interested in recruiting additional student-athletes. There could be many different reasons why college programs are not interested in particular student-athletes and it’s important for us to know that and to understand and to help point our resources in a different direction.

The College List

The College List

College Recruiting

It is important to understand that you will never know where the college scholarship or strong financial package will come from. It’s important to have a large list of college programs in your home state and in the neighboring states.

The Value Of The College List

Selecting a targeted list of college programs is never easy. Many student-athletes want to focus on the major college programs, whether they can play at that level or not. It’s important to develop the appropriate list of college programs to target so we do not waste valuable time going after college programs unnecessarily.

Every student athlete has a dream school or a wish list. Every student athlete has that certain college program that they want to play for and there’s nothing wrong with targeting college programs on that level.

We generally select 10 college programs to begin the recruiting process. As the recruiting process progresses, we normally will add 10 more college programs to the list and continue to add college programs as needed.

It is important to understand that you will never know where the college scholarship or strong financial package will come from. It’s important to have a large list of college programs in your home state and in the neighboring states.

Every college program is different. They have different coaching styles, playing styles, and campus environment. It’s important to expand your list of college programs to insure you are covering every opportunity and uncovering every available financial opportunity.

When developing a list of college programs we want to shoot for the stars, but there’s nothing wrong was landing on the moon.

Opportunities are everywhere in recruiting, but sometimes those opportunities have strings attached and hidden messages.

The main goal is to obtain a college scholarship. The secondary goal is a strong financial package to college. Both equally valuable.

The Danger Of Division One Athletics

The College List

It’s important to select college programs that are going to give you the best opportunity to fulfill your dream of playing in college. A lot of student-athletes want the bright lights of Division I athletics, but don’t realize how challenging and competitive it really is. Go where they want you. Go to a college program that is serious about your athletic and academic development.

Athletic Profiles

Athletic Profiles

College Recruiting

The Athletic Profile is a description of what the student-athlete can do athletically and academically.

This information will appear live on the Woods Recruiting website.

Woods Recruiting’s top goal is to have as much exposure to college coaches on behalf of the student-athletes.

Exposure is a valuable and key component in the college recruiting process.

If they don’t know about you, they can’t recruit you. This is one of the problems in recruiting; student-athletes are not getting enough exposure.   

The student-athlete could possess outstanding grades on all levels, have all the athletic measurables-size, speed, strength, and quickness.

The student-athlete could have amazing video, but sometimes that may not be enough to gain the attention of college coaches. There are many other student-athletes who have similar positive qualifications to attract the attention of college coaches.

Who does a college coach pick? Deciding which student-athlete to recruit can be difficult for college programs.

It’s important that the student-athlete’s name is getting out to a long list of college programs on a consistent basis.

The Athletic Profile is the tool that we use to get the student-athlete’s name into the hands of his many college programs as possible.

Conclusion

The college recruiting process has a starting point. It starts with getting the name of the student-athlete out to as many college programs as possible. We are using the Athletic Profile as a weapon to create as much interest and exposure as possible for that student-athlete.

More is better in the recruiting process. The more information a college program has on a student-athlete, the more easier it will be for that college program to decide on which student-athlete to recruit.

It’s important that the student-athlete’s name is getting out to a long list of college programs on a consistent basis.

Cason Troutman

Scouting Director: North Hollywood, California

My biggest reason to get into recruiting is for my love and passion I have for not only the game, but also the players.  I grew up in small town in Oklahoma where if you weren’t the star quarterback or star point guard the odds were that you weren’t going to play college ball.  It’s the sad truth.  For myself, coming out of high school I wasn’t recruited and neither were most of my friends who were college worthy. We all had to make our own way through the process of playing at the next level. The thing that I want to accomplish with recruiting is giving athletes, who are good enough to play at the next level, that chance to be recognized.

I want to put the kids who bust their butts day and night into college perusing the sport that they love. It’s not a job for me, it’s a passion. One of my favorite quotes in life,” You miss 100% of the shots that you never take.” I believe that this quote can be applied anywhere in life.

Some athletes think of themselves as someone who may not be the prototypical athlete and you may not think you have a shot at the next level. I’m here to help you get that shot that you never thought was possible so how about you and I shoot these shots together! I’m Cason Troutman, I’ve played basketball my entire life. The goal was to play in college, but a knee injury sidelined me. I joined the military where I did six years in field artillery.

In that time, I’ve refereed and coached basketball. I’ve also played two seasons of semi-pro football as quarterback in Oklahoma.  I’m very competitive and will do everything in my power to get you to the next level.
