Helpful tips about recruiting video

Video is crucial to the recruiting process. But, what kind of recruiting video is most beneficial? And, what footage should the video feature? Actually, the answer varies by sport. For example, game video is paramount for high school football prospects.  However, sports like baseball, softball and soccer requires that skills video accompanied by game footage. But, no matter the sport, the purpose of the recruiting video is to demonstrate position specific athletic skills and capability.

Though it may be a matter of debate, it makes little difference if the video is professionally recorded or self-recorded. What matters is that the coaches must be able to clearly identify the player and clearly view all the required skills. 

Lastly, it should be obvious that having no video will hurt the overall recruiting process. Athletes trying to get recruited with no video will find it very challenging. In fact, limited exposure will surely put the student-athlete at a tremendous recruiting disadvantage.
