Recruiting + Alumni



SportsRecruits, the exclusive recruiting tool of Upstate Franchise, is providing resources for families & college coaches in attendance at our events! 

SportsRecruits will contact players & their families directly to provide access to a free SportsRecruits profile to complete. Athletes will be able to update their athletic and academic information leading up to, during, and after the event. 

College Coaches will have full access to this information by simply logging in to EventBeacon, a product powered by SportsRecruits. This sideline evaluation tool will allow college coaches to access the most up to date athlete information, build a strategic recruiting schedule onsite, and focus their recruiting efforts on the players they are most interested in.

Rosters and schedules at Upstate Franchise recruiting events will be available via the EventBeacon app which is free for coaches. Check out this quick video for an overview of the app.
Download EventBeacon to your phone or tablet prior to the event in order to:

  • Access every student athlete’s academic and athletic information, take notes, and make evaluations.
    Build a tiered watchlist of athletes you want to recruit.
  • See which athletes are interested in your program.
  • Build a strategic recruiting schedule for yourself & your staff.
  • Export of your notes, evaluations, and player data following the event.
    Sign in with your .edu email address and your SportsRecruits password. If you have not set one yet, simply click “reset password.” Reach out to for support.”
