HomeWhy Choose NCP

Our goal is to help parents and student-athletes avoid these common mistakes and many other pitfalls of the recruitment process.

1. Not having their player properly evaluated. You should know how your athlete rates and where they stand among others at their position and grade level.

2. Waiting until their Junior or Senior Year to become serious about the recruiting process.

3. Not having a game plan for their athlete's skill and performance development.

4. Depending on their high school coach to help them secure a scholarship offer.

5. Over estimating your player's competition level.

6. Not establishing relationships with coaches early in the process. Thinking athletic ability and skill alone will secure a scholarship offer.

The Importance of Athletic Evaluations "Report Cards"

When we think about our academic careers we understand the purpose of receiving progress reports and report cards. Those evaluative tools show students their areas of strength and also growth opportunities by which they can get better. Academic Report Cards and Progress Reports are important because they:

- Provide a chance for the student to see the fruits of their labor

- Students receive a measurement of progress which is compared against established criteria and guidelines (GPA)

- Progress reports provide a basis for creating a plan to improve. 

Ultimately continuing to become a better student serves you well as you compete against other students who choose not to take advantage of the academic progress information provided.

The same can be said regarding athletic evaluations. Without an athletic evaluation your player has no way of knowing or understanding where he or she stands against local, regional or national competition when it comes to scholarship offers. By having your student-athlete evaluated, your athlete will have the information needed in order to devise a plan of improvement. Your athlete will also gain a clear understanding of the types of college programs looking that are scouting for student-athletes that fit his or her profile. 

National College Preps worked with a combination of professionals ranging from former Pro-Athletes, College Counselors, Scouts, former Division-I Athletes, and Coaches to create a unique evaluation system. Similarly to the academic report cards, the NCP Athletic Evaluation utilizes a variety of established criteria to provide feedback on the student-athletes:

NCP Evaluations Include

- Multiple Assessments for each evaluation

- Projection of future Collegiate Competition Level

- Position Change (if recommended)

- Game/Highlight Film Analysis

- National College Preps Player Rating

- Summary Evaluation added to the Prospect’s Recruiting Profile located at

Obtaining a National College Preps Evaluation is Simple

Through sites like HULD and YouTube, it is easy for student-athletes to create film and showcase themselves. The thing most people do not realize is that they may actually be exposing themselves in an inopportune way.

Having film reviewed by National College Preps during an evaluation will not only enable student-athletes to perform better as a result of properly utilizing the feedback provided back to them, but they will also understand which direction to take their game film prior to submitting it to coaches.
