How do I get a Football/Basketball Recruiting Profile on 247Sports.com and also get my highlight videos added to my profile?

Intangibles during the athletic recruiting process24/7 Sports is the newest of the four sites we are profiling but has worked hard to put themselves on the map with the likes of Scout.com, Rivals.com, and ESPN.  The good news is that since the site has been around longer, they have made finding contact information much easier.

Let me mention that before you try this, I would recommend having some solid stats and Division I interest to back up your claim of how good of a player you are. Chances are that if you should be listed in that database, then you definitely should have at least a minor amount of interest from schools at the Division I level.

First line of contact: For general inquiries, including prospect database additions/submissions, please e-mail recruiting@247Sports.com

When emailing these experts, ask them about getting a profile in the database. The next step after they set it up is to ask them where you need to send your video to be included.

One last final note. Please do not contact multiple people on this list asking them to add you. Find one that would be considered in your area and write an email introducing yourself. You may also want to include your recruiting profile as well.
