The college recruiting process is exactly that -- a process. The information on this page is intended to help BFC players and families better understand the recruiting process and develop a timeline of tasks that should be completed over the recruitment years. Each year we host one girls and one boys College Recruiting Seminar to discuss all aspects of the recruiting process. If you want to pursue a career in college soccer, we highly encourage you to attend these seminars!
From running around freshly cut grass as a young kid to training hard on a competitive club team, for most men’s soccer players, the road to playing in college began many years before their recruitment. And that’s why gathering the necessary information and picking the right college to play soccer for is so important. Buffalos FC is fully committed to helping out all of our player accomplish this dream. We start the college recruitment process at the 13U level to best prepare and roadmap our athletes for this journey.
From club tournaments to the best college soccer recruiting websites, we’ve outlined the major sections that will help guide student-athletes along the way on their college recruitment journey. For example, the recruitment process for men’s soccer swings into high gear in 10th grade. Most college coaches states that 74% of Division 1 men’s soccer coaches begin evaluating talent in 10th grade, and another 22% begin in 11th grade. That’s why student-athletes need to obtain club and tournament experience at an early age and make sure they ace the recruitment process every step of the way. To do that, they’ll need to know exactly what college programs are looking for.
