From Unrecruited to DI Scholarship in Three Months
Alex Michaud was the starting first baseman for Western Nebraska Community College. While being a starter all season, Alex found himself without many opportunities to play at a 4-year school after his sophomore year. In June, his coach invited Alex to join FieldLevel, wrote his private assessment, and had Alex upload his batting practice video.
“Before FieldLevel, my recruitment was a complete guessing game. I was email blasting any college coach I could find online asking for a chance to play for them. I wasn’t receiving much response with this approach, so I asked my coach if he would advocate for me on FieldLevel”
After completing his profile, Alex began receiving a tremendous amount of interest from college coaches. He wanted to be sure to personally reach out to specific coaches interested in him, so he upgraded to “Profile Activity” to track which colleges were viewing his profile.
“The upgrade was so valuable. It was inexpensive and gave me exactly the information I needed to email college coaches personally. After upgrading, I was receiving a ton of email replies from college coaches unlike before. We’d talk on the phone and they would invite me out for visits. It was great”.
Alex received offers from Division I programs like North Carolina A&T and University of Albany in New York as well as Division II programs like Augustana University. He decided to take his first visit to University of Albany.
“I immediately fell in love with the school and the coaches really wanted me. They offered me a scholarship and said I would be penciled in as the starting first baseman. FieldLevel provided me great opportunities that I would have never had before”.
