We procrastinated on asking for help from Brian Smith and University Prospects to the point that we were now at National Signing Day without a school for August. We thought we had lots of time and many possibilities yet nothing was definite. As parents going through the process we lacked the professional knowledge, proper questions to ask and insight that Brian brings. Like many others we were going to do this ourselves. No problem! The problem was our resources were limited and we lacked time and energy to do our daughter's search proper justice. We sat down with Brian and gave him our wish list in terms as to where she would like to go and what our daughter wanted to major in. The first major difference we noticed was the number of contacts that Brian brought to the front. These were Division 1 schools that had the parameters that we asked for. We found that coaches had greater respect for Brian's opinion as a professional that deals in matching prospective athletes to their programs. Brian's wealth of contacts was obvious and immediate. As parents it was peace of mind to finally leave the dirty work behind and see the University interest roll in. Brian and University Prospects have developed a large pool of schools and coaches which grows with every athlete he searches for. His website and video section is a major plus for University Coaches to go to and view for themselves those who are available. His web site increased our daughters chances nationwide. Brian is able to negotiate and mediate with coaches which takes off immense pressure as well as foreseeing difficulties that may arise from past experiences. If there is a perfect fit for your child, Brian will work endless hours to find it! Our only mistake was that we didn't take advantage of Brian and University Prospects sooner. Brian had our backs every step of the way and continues to check on us as professional follow up! We are indebted to Brian and cannot speak more glowingly of his efforts and determination John Lowicki - Daughter Sarah has committed to a soccer scholarship to Florida Gulf Coast University (NCAA 1)

We are University Prospects and we have been helping athletes and their familes through the cross country recruitment process since 1999. At University Prospects we have 2 goals for each client we serve. The first is to help them get a great education and the second is to help them obtain an athletic scholarship in order to help pay for it.

Our program helps you to discover your needs in a cross country program and school that will be the best "fit" for you both athletically and academically. We stay in touch with coaches across North America and are constantly looking to fill their specific needs. When we find something that matches everyone wins.

The truth is that, except for the incredibly talented who generate their own "buzz" everyone else needs to be promoted and matched in the way we do it to make for an optimal experience.

If you are a runner of any skill at all then you know about hard work and focus. The cross country recruitment system is no different except that you can have us focus on the sometimes-confusing details and do the rest of the hard work.........while you and your family focus on making the right choice.
