    The “COMPETITIVE EDGE” Recruiting System

    The Proven Game Plan to Win an Athletic Scholarship

    Get Started * Get Noticed * Get Recruited

    There is over $1-Billion in athletic scholarships available every year for Men’s and Women’s College Sports.

    This is the plan for families because it works even if…

    Your son or daughter is a good athlete, but not a superstar
    Your teen doesn’t have Honor Roll grades
    You can’t afford high-priced consultants or “recruiting/scouting services”
    You’re starting late
    Scouts saw few, if any, of the schools games

    I don't know about this particular company, but I do know of one outfit and they're legit and I think what they do is completely legal.
    What they mostly do is place minor sports athletes at D-III schools around the country.
    Parent pays a modest fee, maybe 100 bucks, more if they get a highlight tape. The service farms the information and tape out to schools.
    They try to match what the kid is looking for to the right school.
    So let's say you play high school soccer in New York and you can't afford college, but you're a decent player and have good grades.
    The service will find some NAIA or D-III school that doesn't have a recruiting budget, and no schollies but they can offer work study, grants, etc. They put the information in the coach's hands and it goes from there.
    So then said kid gets an offer to play at College of the Ozarks or Southern Nazerene. School gets paid for, parents are happy, schools are happy. Everybody wins.
