Montgomery, AL – March 16, 2016 – Gulf States Elite Lacrosse and SportsRecruits have reached an agreement on a club integration, it was announced today. As part of the agreement, Gulf States Elite players will receive access to the innovative suite of tools provided by the recruiting platform.
“We are a regionally focused club team with focus on elite players from the Southeast, and this is huge!,” said Gulf States Elite Lacrosse Club Director Andrew S. Carey. “This integration will go a long way in helping all the players in our program gain exposure as well as lean on a high quality service that can aid in the college search process.”
SportsRecruits is an online platform built specifically for high school players to assist them in streamlining their recruiting process. The platform and tools offered assist high school student-athletes in taking charge of their own recruitment.
“We are so excited to work with Gulf States Elite,” said SportsRecruits Director Will Amling. “The platform is a great fit for their program, because it breaks any barriers geography may cause.”
“The platform will help my club and families in exposing and putting our players in front of college coaches,” added Carey. “This will really help in putting the club out there to school all across the country, not just in the Southeast.”
SportsRecruits allows players to efficiently put the information college coaches need in one place, and empowers student-athletes, families and club staffers to work in tandem to be proactive in the recruiting process.
“Having an intricate knowledge of what college coaches need, the format and presentation of the platform is clean, organized, and information is right on,” said Carey. “GSE will benefit greatly from this platform because it will better put the power in the hands of the players and families. They will be able to establish connections with college coaches, perform adequate college searches based on regional, academic, and athletic desires. As a director I will better be able to follow and organize as players do their due diligence in the recruiting process.”
