Ryan: “Jon Feyen helped me by reaching out to as many colleges as he could have, and answered questions that my parents and I had for him. He definitely impacted the process a lot in a very positive way.”

Megan Darling (Ryan’s mom): “Thank you to Jon Feyen at ScoutU for helping us through the recruiting process for our son, Ryan Darling. We were struggling with the process before working with Jon. He held us accountable and introduced us to his/ScoutU’s network of contacts and coaches. We feel like our son ended up making a great choice at a school we would not have been introduced to if not for ScoutU’s network. We are very appreciative of Jon’s work.”
