NERR-TV Virtual Showcase
Ongoing at NewEnglandRecruitingReport.com
For the last 14 years, the New England Recruiting Report has provided student-athletes with the opportunity to earn exposure to college coaches through the premier exposure events in the region, unparalleled media coverage, and one of the nation's largest scouting services.
But now, as the world deals with the pandemic of the coronavirus, the sporting world has come to a grinding halt as professional leagues, college athletics, and, of course, grassroots basketball have all shut down for the time being.
However, that doesn't mean that there aren't kids looking for exposure and, with that in mind, NERR has designed a virtual platform to offer local prospects an alternative strategy to help compensate for what they are missing.
It began with unsigned seniors - who were counting on spring open gyms, events, and live periods in order to solidify their college plans. The Unsigned Senior Virtual Showcase included 50 players and ended up being more successful than we ever could have anticipated. All 50 players were recruited by college programs with close to 20 getting interest and offers from scholarship level schools. Then, we expanded the program to allow rising seniors in the class of 2021 to take advantage of those opportunities.
Due to that success and the consequent demand, we are now extending the virtual showcase to allow any high-school or prep school prospect to participate.
The NERR-TV Virtual Showcase will include:
- Personalized highlight video
- Cover story on NewEnglandRecruitingReport.com
- A minimum of 3 social media posts
- Tailored content that can include stats, quotes, personal recommendations, academic qualifications, and/or recruiting information
That personalized content will be visible across all NERR media platforms including:
- A website that has averaged over 10,000 unique hits per day for over the last ten days
- Social media accounts with 50,000 collective followers
- A scouting service with over 225 subscribing college coaching staffs across the country
