Milford, NH – April 27, 2016 – Granite State Elite (GSE) and SportsRecruits have reached an agreement on a club integration, it was announced today. As part of the agreement, GSE lacrosse players will receive access to the innovative suite of tools provided by the recruiting platform.
“We are so excited to work with SportsRecruits to offer more opportunity to our players which will simplify the process and allow better communication,” Granite State Elite Club Director and Recruiting Coordinator McKinley Curro Sbordone. “The platform is going to be a one-stop shop for our players and families. Not only does it provide a place to create an evolving player profile with video clips, transcripts and schools of interest but it also provides a messaging service where players can communicate with colleges and send relevant information.”
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 thrilled to welcome Granite State Elite to our platform,” said SportsRecruits Director Will Amling. “The tools we provide will help keep the club organized while putting the players in charge of their own recruitment.”
“The recruiting process continues to move faster and faster and we want to give the most opportunity to our players and provide access to coaches and information that will guide them to make process easier and less intimidating” said Curro Sbordone. “One of the most valuable tools that will resonate with our players who are just starting the recruiting process is the ability to search schools everywhere and the search tools that allows you to weed out schools by GPA ranges, SAT scores, all divisions and specific mileage. It will really help our players to be open minded and mindful of all the great schools out there that have lacrosse!”
In addition, Granite State Elite staffers will have more access into the efforts of their players, helping the club to further assist its student-athletes.
“The organization will benefit by allowing coaches and administration a real-time snap shot of the communication between players and college coaches,” added Curro Sbordone. “It also provides us the ability to see the “homework” our players are doing as well as other functionalities that will allow us to help guide players geographically, academically and competitively.”
