Are you a high school athlete with dreams of gaining admission to an Ivy League school?

Are you feeling the pressure of the college application process and finding yourself lost in all the jargon like ‘highlight tape’, ‘combines’ and ‘exploding offers’? Don’t panic, we’ve got you covered. Ivy League Football recruiting can be both a long and incredibly competitive process. This book will give you a basic outline of what to do and what NOT to do as you navigate your way through the application period.

Ivy League Football Recruiting is broken down into simple steps so that you can understand the application timeline and start coming up with a winning strategy. With this eBook you can learn how to make a highlight tape and good impression on both your high school and prospective college team coaches.


I understand how everything surrounding the college application is important, but is it really necessary to pay attention to the creation of a highlight tape?

Yes it is. The highlight tape is the best way the school’s coaching staff can see your performance in a game aside from attending one of your high school’s games. The clips you include in the tape can affect how the coaches see you and will help them determine whether your position in the team. The highlight tape has to be short and to the point. It has to have a sufficient amount of plays, and have a full-length game at the end. Embellishments will not work in your favor. Overall, the highlight tape, along with your college application, GPA and performance at a camp and combine are the major deciding factors for the admissions process.

I’ve heard about resources that help you with the athletic recruiting process. How helpful are those?

While I do know that a lot of people use BeRecruited and other tools to understand the application process further, I don’t really advise anyone to go to online resources that ‘guarantee’ admission into Ivy League schools. I understand that students and parents want that extra feeling of security, but sometimes, those end up being really big scams, and I do know some people who have lost thousands of dollars to these recruiting sites.

Do the same steps apply if I want to be admitted into a non-Ivy League school?

Even in the Ivy League, the requirements for admission vary slightly. While the common application or the general application process are mostly uniform, there are other factors, such as the Band System and the Academic Index that affect your chances of admission into a certain university. A lot of decisions are based on how your personality reflects on the materials you submit. They want a student who will integrate well within the community.
