Top College Prospects Offers Extensive Video Services
Using Video as a Marketing Tool
One of the most important tools in the recruiting process is videotape. More than likely, the only way a college coach will see you play is on a videotape! Why? With limited resources, a college coach cannot take the time or spend the money to begin assessing your talent -- to determine if you are someone they'd like to recruit. Coaches use video to determine ability and form, and then decide if you are someone worthy of a campus visit or a recruiting trip!
You Need A Video That A Coach Can Use
Most videos received by coaches include grainy video that includes either extreme close-ups of a specific player or wide angle shots that force the coach to search for you (and most times, don't find you!).
What Should a Video Include?
Personal highlights, game film, a personal introduction, personal information as title pages and a highlighted athlete (with spot-shading or arrow to designate YOU!).
TCP makes raw video footage, as well as edited highlight and game tapes available to showcase participants.
