True Recruiting

We’ve sent more players to collegiate programs than any other club in the nation…

True’s modern approach to recruiting stems from our ability to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of collegiate admissions. From your first game to your college commitment, our recruiting process is designed to keep one thing in mind: the player.

Our vast network of full-time program directors, recruiting advisors, and admissions counseling partners gives us the continued ability to develop relationships with every NCAA program in the country. True’s athletes benefit from consistent recruiting exposure through elite events, showcases, and media content. 

We advocate for our players.

Our personalized recruiting approach is built on advocacy for our players and their families. Our job is to understand the goals of our student athletes and their families, then help them identify a school and program that will provide them with a well-rounded collegiate experience, and we put academics at the top of that list.

Recruiting Roadmap

We don’t just talk the talk – we’ll start on day one to put together a plan and set of attainable goals to further the development of our players and help them achieve significant milestones along the way.
