ScoutU, a family owned and operated company, scouts games and events, looking for college talent. Once we identify an athlete as having college potential from seeing him or her play in person, on video and/or by talking to at least one of his or her’s coaches, we set up an in-home or online video chat consultation to determine if the athlete has the drive, character, work ethic and academic capabilities to get recruited by college coaches. We ONLY help athletes we determine are college talent and are athletes colleges will be interested in. We have this standard to keep our impeccable reputation with college coaches and also it’s only fair to the athlete to give them an honest evaluation if he or she can actually get recruited to play in college. We come up with a game plan for the athlete to maximize his or her exposure to colleges. We give a trustworthy assessment of which colleges would be the best fit for the athlete and be the most realistic in which to be recruited.
