Over 400 of the planned 600 adds to the recruit757 online database are now in place

Our work on the recruit757 database continues.
This work is being done in addition to monitoring social media, reviewing film, updating college coaches and writing news updates for athletes across the state of Virginia.
In our current additions to the database, we already have a list of almost 600 athletes who will be added. We’re adding them school by school and we’re now past 200 athletes added in our latest wave of additions. They’re being added alphabetically by school.
Athletes from the following schools are the most recently added:
Isle of Wight Academy
Patrick Henry, Patriot, Paul VI, Petersburg, Phoebus and many more are the next in line to be added.
It’s our goal to include as many college bound athletes as possible. We establish a benchmark that includes the following criteria for being added to the database: 1. Varsity experience or a clear path to a major varsity role in the coming year. 2. Skill and academics that are likely to meet a college coach’s standards for recruitment. 3. When in doubt, we will rely on your high school coach’s endorsement.
Because of our requirements, you’ll typically see somewhere between 1 to 8 athletes per school in our database. We will not list JV athletes (unless requested by the varsity coach) and we cannot list every player on every team. This data is all compiled and added manually.
If you think you should be added to our database and you are a Virginia football athlete, feel free to complete our “Submit Player” form here on the website. Please only submit the form once. If you have already submitted the form, we have it. We don’t need two, three, four or more of the same information on an athlete.
If you have sent us a player profile request since last week, we are taking those but they are added to the back of the list that’s being uploaded.
Our current player profile database for athletes in classes 2021 to 2024 can be accessed here. If you’re interested in athletes from previous seasons, you can use the search tool on the page.
If you have any question on inclusion reach out via our “contact us”. The best central point for us to gather information is your high school coach. That way, all college prospects from the same school can be included.
Thanks for enjoying and making the most of the Ultimate Recruit/recruit757 website. We enjoy serving the athletic community of Virginia and want to see every student-athlete succeed in reaching their goals.
