In this episode Gerry talks to recruiting specialist Brian Scanlon. In addition to a playing career at Babson College, Brian also spent five years as an assistant coach and out of state recruiter for Babson, bringing dozens of players from across the country to the Division III powerhouse. Upon completing his MBA at Babson, Brian left the college coaching ranks and started his own recruiting services business, The Recruiting Coaches. Now, Brian and his colleagues help players and families alike through the recruiting process and into the colleges that fit the best.
This conversation covers Brian's experience as a college coach and recruiter, his immediate transition from player to coach and what he learned during his time as a college recruiter that can help many coaches, players and parents. Topics such as: recruiting and getting recruited to the right levels/fits, the importance of character and grades and when it may be time to reevaluate perceived skill level and fit.
From there, Brian and Gerry discuss the current showcase model, the importance of a good first impression when it comes to exposure and how you can avoid wasting money when it comes to recruiting. All that and more on this episode of Muscles and Management.
