A Man Filming Sports - Recruit Reels

High School Recruiting Videos

Recruit Reels has a staff of seasoned professionals with sports backgrounds dedicated to showcasing high school athletes in their pursuit of college scholarships through high school recruiting videos. We bring our experience and connections in the industry to marry athletes with recruiters by providing information through video production.

Recruit Reels began producing professional sports high school recruiting videos approximately 10 years ago because we saw a need for high school athletes that needed help in acquiring an athletic scholarship. We bring dozens of years of video production skills to every project as well as a real love of sports. Also, we enjoy being a part of helping families afford college. The primary benefit we provide our clients is a complete understanding of what coaches, scouts and recruiters are looking for in high school recruiting videos. Get REEL. Get RECRUITED.

Why Professional Sports Highlight High School Recruiting Videos?

There are approximately 23 NCAA-sponsored sports at over 1,000 member institutions involving over 400,000 student-athletes. Most of these athletes have all or a portion of their college education paid for through scholarships and grants. We typically don’t work for “blue-chippers” because they are already being actively recruited by colleges. We usually work with above average athletes that need to “self-recruit” to schools looking for a solid student-athlete that will help their program. Our goal is to help you become one of these student-athletes.

Recruit Reels provides three powerful reasons why coaches, recruiters, scouts, athletes, and parents should use our services:

  1. Our high school recruiting videos are true recruiting videos combining game action, specific skills, training/workout footage, stats, and an interview to provide the complete profile of the student athlete.
  2. We post any all provided stats, grades, and ACT/SAT scores on our highlight or skills video.
  3. We provide an online profile so that coaches, recruiters and scouts can watch your video and contact you.

What the Experts Say:

Video is the most compelling resource for recruiters and our videos provide a professional presentation. Recruiters use these videos to determine if you’re a fit for their program. We interviewed several college coaches to find out exactly what they needed in high school recruiting videos and believe we have struck the proper balance between sports and informational video.

Here’s what we were told:

  • “I need to see their athletic skills immediately.” We accomplish this by shooting our footage isolating on one subject. We will show the athlete’s skill set in real-time without effects and then replay in slow motion for emphasis. We spot-shadow our athletes at the beginning of each play where identification is questionable. We will limit the clips to 5-6 so that we can focus on different skills because we realize recruiters need to see versatility. The first minute tells them whether the rest of the video is worth watching, so we will sequence the scenes accordingly.
  • “Provide stats and grades.” We will do this time-saving step for the recruiters by getting the recruit’s permission to present this info. This helps coaches decide if the athlete is a good student as well.
  • “I need their email address, home number, cell number, parents’ numbers and email addresses, or any means available to make contact.” The most frustrating part of recruiting is to have interest in a prospect and not have a means of contact. We require all our recruits to provide all the information listed above.

We hope this resource will prove valuable to you throughout the recruiting process. It is very important to begin this process as early as is reasonable. Your high school recruiting videos will be posted to our website so that you can distribute or send the link to prospective coaches.
