When looking at Rivals.com and Scout.com, it was a breeze finding contact information and the email addresses needed to contact recruiting experts and get yourself listed in their database of top players. But it was definitely a challenge to find much at ESPN. It may be because they want to keep the database limited or that they just don’t have enough staff at this point to really cover high school athletics (While that may change soon with ESPN Rise coming in August).
Anyways, I have done what I could to find as much contact information as I can to submit more information about yourself to ESPN. The good news is that it does seem that they watch a substantial amount of tape and grade the players out. While some are more accurate than others, this is at least a step in the right direction for their coverage. For those curious, click here to see how they grade out prospective recruits.
Where to send video? I was actually able to find this:
92 Montvale Ave.
Stoneham, Mass., 02180
Here is what I found regarding the staff at Scouts Inc. and ESPN.

Tucker is a recruiting coordinator for ESPN Recruiting and has close to a decade of coaching experience at the college and high school level.

Pawlak is a recruiting coordinator for ESPN Recruiting, who spent eight years as a personnel scout with the New England Patriots, including winning a Super Bowl ring for the 2001 season.

No email address or contact information was listed.
You can also submit feedback to their site by clicking here and filling out this contact form. I understand that ESPN is a huge nation wide side and you don’t want to put contact information out there but it was like pulling teeth to find what I did. Best of luck getting your information posted. If it is as hard as finding the contact information, it will take a while.
