ScoutForce Announces Partnership with CSA PrepStar

The world of recruiting has evolved significantly over the last decade with technology providing more resources and better access than ever before. Recent disruptions from COVID have introduced uncertainty into this process with eligibility extensions causing colleges to navigate the challenges of roster management. For more than three decades, CSA PrepStar has been one of the most impactful recruiting service providers and has helped more than 75,000 high school athletes find more than $2.5 billion in scholarships. Now, CSA PrepStar is joining forces with athletic technology platform ScoutForce to build an expedient platform to facilitate the process and take recruiting into a new era.

“We are two completely different companies serving the same marketplace so in my view it is a very complimentary relationship,” said ScoutForce CEO Jeff Cravens. “When you look at the recruiting marketplace, most kids just need a little guidance and help and they probably don’t need to go to the length of having a recruiting coach or somebody helping them through the process, but I also think there is a percentage of families that really do require that help and there has been no better brand for such a long than than PrepStar. I just think that their challenge has been more of going from an old-school company into the digital world. I feel like it is going to help both companies a lot.”

Cravens’ background specializes in the technological and digital side of the business. He took over company BeRecruited a little over a decade ago and was able to sell it after building it up. As the recruiting world has continued to evolve, Cravens’ and his partners have talked about how there is room for a new platform to take place and this is a major step in creating this platform.

“I think the two things that really fueled the growth of the ScoutForce platform are we’ve really grown with our 3,100 college coaches and we are growing about 100 a week now to come in and utilize the platform,” explained Cravens. “The second thing is coaches have come a lot more active on our platform and that is what all the high school kids want to know. The other thing is recruiting is such an unknown process right now, because of the roster management that is having to take place at the college level. That creates a lot of uncertainty and our platform is there to say take care of what you can control and the rest of the process will take care of itself.”
