Larita Wilcher knows a problem when she see’s it. Years of experience as a college basketball recruiting coordinator does that to a person.
So when she ran across an issue she and her fellow coaches kept having to overcome, she set out to solve it.
“I used many scouting services and databases, but none gave the recruiter a platform to host schedules in a way that would allow them to manipulate the data”, says Wilcher. “I also realized there was no central location that provided the schedules of those prospects that I needed, which meant that each year planning how we would efficiently use our recruiting days and coordinate it with the staff was a time consuming process. Even when I had administrators and managers to help with compiling the schedules it became a static outdated piece once it was put into a spreadsheet.”
So after years of research and work, Wilcher launched Recruit Scheduling Solutions.
“It’s a solution for college coaches who value their time and efforts in recruiting”, says Wilcher. “We assist them by providing a tool and service that keeps them organized and efficient managers of their time. Our service of providing the playing schedules of their top prospects and the software to manage the information is the most innovative and interactive approach to recruiting, and it provides that data to them in one central online location.”
And high level coaches agree.
“RSS makes tracking and staying relevant with our recruits a snap”, says Louisville basketball coach Stephanie Norman. In my opinion, it’s a must have in a college coach’s software library.”
Xavier coach Bryce McKey adds, “This service and tool has greatly helped our staff stay organized and has saved us countless hours of prep time.”
The service is affordable, as well. Especially when coaches consider the time and wasted energy in tracking multiple recruits. Annual subscriptions start at just $1,500 per year, making it one of the most cost-effective tools available for college coaches.
