    In simple terms, we find scholarships for kids who have the ability, grades and desire to play at some level in college. Results speak volumes, and 26 of 26 2002 graduates with offers, with 24 of the 26 playing in college AIN'T TOO BAD.

    Here's how we do it...

    We put together profiles including coach evaluations (go to www.nsr-inc.com/tgreco, click on "Local Athletes" then click on a student's name for an example) and distribute it 4 different ways to college coaches...
    1) On-line (www.nsr-inc.com, click on Student Athletes, then Male vs Female, then sport, etc.)
    2) Via email. We send a sport-specific "database" every month to hundreds of college coaches in that sport.
    3) Via hard copy. Our enrolled prospects choose either 20 or 50 colleges (depending on program) each year for us to send a color copy of their profile to.
    4) Via CD. Twice each year (April and October), we burn information for all prospects in a given sport (including video, in some cases) onto a CD and send the sport-specific CD to the sport-specific coach in every college in the country.

    We also edit existing video that the family provides, send it to any 10 colleges selected by the student-athlete, provide it FREE to ANY college coach who requests a copy and, in some cases, digitize it for on-line viewing on a student-athlete's personal website.

    In addition, I personally send emails to about 300 coaches (for EVERY sport) on behalf of my clients. This has been very beneficial in helping me develop relationships and credibility with college coaches.

    I also educate families on the recruiting process in the hopes that kids with ability (and grades) will not just sit back and "hope" that they get recruited. The people who I want as clients are those who understand they should do something about it, but don't have the time or simply aren't interested in doing it themselves. Since I do it for a living, they use me. My efforts, coupled with the programs that have kept NSR around for 22 years (longer than any other scouting service) yields positive results. Virtually all of our kids get offers, but recognize that some of those are DIII only, meaning academic money, but at least the coach wants them. For many, that is most important, because they just want to play 4 more years, so it is worthwhile investing in NSR to help find a school where that can happen. The biggest problems are those kids (and parents) who don't realize how tough college competition is, and expect D1s to be all over them. I try to manage their expectations and position them appropriately to college coaches.

    If you truly have a 3.5 GPA and throw mid-to-high 80s, then yes, you will get recruited, especially with our help. I am sure some schools will come after you even WITHOUT our help.

    But...
    How much can you get in the form of academic and athletic scholarship money?
    How much will you play?
    How many schools will like you and/or want you?
    Are you willing to travel out-of-state?
    Are you willing to play baseball at any college division...DI, DII, NAIA or DIII?

    We are NOT cheap. Our programs for underclassmen are $1495 or $2495 (1 time fee). There is also an $1195 program, but very few choose it because it only utilizes 2 (on-line and hard copy) profile distribution methods. I also have a $200 "pay-for-performance" offer which is limited but still effective for late, overlooked seniors.

    Yes, it's expensive, but consider the cost relative to the payback. If you pay $1495 and ONLY get a $1500 scholarship in return, you hav just quadrupled your investment. 24 out of 26 - not bad!

    The county in which you are reffering to as being small, may be true but it is a high school sport hotbed. Look at the college players that have played n your high school the last 2 years alone. I think 5 went to play D-1 Ball.

    3wishes-

    You don't have to mention the athletes, but can you tell us the DI colleges they compete (d) at?

    EKU and UK is where they graduated and went to. EKU is considered D-1 in Baseball and Basketball, correct?

    Yes, EKU is DI in everything. You proved a point I will now make. The area (Rockcastle County) might be a hotbed of high school athletic talent, but the colleges the kids attend (perhaps by choice) are local, i.e. those who read the local paper. I encourage student-athletes and their families to create more opportunities for themselves by proactively informing MANY more college coaches about their ability, in areas where they would otherwise NOT KNOW who these kids are. And I, of course, help to do that for those folks who want the help.

    It's especially critical in partial scholarship situations. Some people consider it "shopping your kid," but I consider it finding the best opportunity - academically, athletically, financially and geographically - for a deserving student. Would you rather sit on the bench with a 25% scholarship at a school close to home, or play with a 50% scholarship 400 miles away? It's all about choices.

    Pay-for-performance

    I was checking out your info and want to obtain more info on this plan. I coach soccer in Louisville and have 2 seniors who could play soccer in college. One of the players has had a few offers to play D1 due to grades/ability. The other has a 3.2, 22 on his ACT and can play in DII OR III. He has been overlooked and I was checking on this plan for him due to the money. I have not been out of the high school coaching ranks since 95' and things have changed for sure....Thank You....

    E-91-

    Wish I had picked up your post on Friday, but I was on my way to E-Town, where I just returned from a golf weekend. I just drove through Louisville.

    Best thing to do is give me a call at home (859 331 5151) some evening (until 11:30 OK) or send me an email (tom.greco@fuse.net). I have helped a number of soccer players which currently include the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati players of the year. There can be a lot of opportunities if the kids have ability, grades and both geographic and division of college flexibility. A skills footage tape would be valuable as well. But I am sure you have heard all of those things already.

    Let me know when we can talk; I think I can help your players, even though it is late for seniors.
