The world of sports consulting, sports tech and recruiting continues to evolve and for us it’s always been interesting to see innovation, development and partnerships all pulling together to help advance the industry forward. Since 2019, our partnership with Atlanta-based company Competitive Sports Analysis is one of the partnerships that blends our industry leading education and empowerment offerings (Recruit Route) with their predictive analytics platform for college coaches called, ScoutSMART.
In short, ScoutSMART is a talent evaluation platform specifically designed to help coaches efficiently identify the best recruits for their program. The idea is to bring some technology to the process of making an informed decision about recruits and comparing them to other peers in the recruiting class.
We are thrilled to be part of the scoutSMART communities as a way for college coaches to easily find recruits in these communities by downloading the scoutSMART FirstView mobile application and in our case selecting Recruit Route Elite as a community. Here a coach will see recruits profiles with stats, academics and videos all in one place. For our team, we will be pushing all of our Recruit Route Elite clients into the scoutSMART data platform to ensure they are as prominently viewed as possible nationally!
“ I believe that there is significant synergy in our partnership with the Recruit Route”, said Diane Bloodworth, Competitive Sports Analysis founder and CEO. “This partnership continues to support our goal of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the college football recruiting process and that benefits all participants – recruits, parents, high school coaches, and college coaches. Working with the Recruit Route allows scoutSMART to improve access to recruits and college coaches. We can connect with recruits to ensure that we have complete and accurate data. In addition, we will highlight the Recruit Route Elite student-athletes in our new communities to college coaches across the country”.
