You’ve come to the right place to find great softball prospects! At ScoutU, our scouts personally qualify prospects to make sure they have the athletic and academic talent, character and drive to play in college. We scout players at events and have personal meetings with the athletes and their parents before we work with them. Browse our SOFTBALL PROSPECTS to see our latest prospect websites, most of which include video for you to evaluate, or fill out a COLLEGE COACH REQUEST (scroll to the bottom of that page) to let us know what your recruiting needs are or what specific ScoutU prospects you are interested in recruiting. When you send us your recruiting needs, we will ONLY send you ScoutU prospects that are a match for your school and NOT just a blind list of players, many of whom would not consider your school. We don’t want to waste your time and want to make your recruiting as efficient as possible!

“Having Jason help me with my recruiting process was really eye opening and helpful as someone who wasn’t really experienced with recruiting. I’d say that because of the amount of colleges I was able to reach in a short period of time because of Jason, it really helped me get noticed by multiple schools so I didn’t have ‘all my eggs in one basket.’ Not only did Jason help me find lots of schools, but he also made sure that they fit into what I wanted to major in, how far I was willing to travel, and many other things. Overall I would recommend ScoutU to anyone that was serious about becoming a student-athlete in college. Thank you so much Jason and ScoutU!!!”

“ScoutU and Jason provided Sierra a competitive advantage in her recruiting journey. Not only was Jason always available and quick to reply with excellent advice, but the website, video, college contacts and emails provided Sierra so much opportunity that we simply would not have been able to accomplish independently. Sierra received several offers and was able to make the choice that provided the best scholarship, academic and athletic fit. I would highly recommend Jason and ScoutU. My only regret was that we did not start working with ScoutU sooner in this process! Thank you Jason for all your guidance and expertise through this recruitment process!”

“Going into the recruiting process, we knew very little on what it was like and how to effectively get the best results out of the process. During the first meeting we became comfortable with how Jason thought and the knowledge he had about the recruiting process. Throughout the process he set us up with tools for success. He was a great person to lean on for guidance and information at all times. He was instrumental in helping Alyssa go to a school she wants to study at and play softball at as well.
We are very thankful for Jason, and everything he has done for our family.”
