Athlete's Guide to Recruiting

Interested in playing at the next level? Hudl is here to help you get noticed. Start by updating your profile and highlights, this is a recruiter’s hub for infor­ma­tion on you, so make sure it’s a good rep­re­sen­ta­tion of who you are, as both a stu­dent and an athlete.

Athletes must opt in to recruiting to allow their Hudl profile to be viewed by registered recruiters.

What are the most important fields for me to fill out?

You’ll see an R icon next to fields that are hidden from the public but are viewable by recruiters if you opt­ in to recruit­ing. The more filled out your profile is, the more comprehensive view recruiters will have of you as a student-athlete

What does my profile look like to a recruiter?

Below is a screenshot of what your profile will look like to a college recruiter once you opt in to recruit­ing, this is the same view you have of your own profile.

Remember to update your pro­file after each sea­son to ensure the most updat­ed infor­ma­tion is available.

Can recruiters automatically see my information?

Recruiters can always find your pub­lic pro­file, but when you opt­ in to recruit­ing, they’ll have access to more of the con­tent that helps them eval­u­ate you as a recruitable ath­lete. This includes con­tact infor­ma­tion, your aca­d­e­m­ic and ath­let­ic stats, highlights and full videos of your games.
