College Recruiting

Navigating the landscape from the junior level to collegiate athlete can be a daunting task. Junior golfers and their parents have to decide which tournaments to play, how many tournaments to play, which schools would be a good fit both academically and athletically, ensure NCAA eligibility, how to best market yourself to college coaches – among many other things. The process can be overwhelming, particularly for families who have not gone through this process before.

Fortunately, Brad has gone through this process himself as a former Division I golfer. In recent years, he has applied his experience to navigate student-athletes through their entire recruitment, culminating in scholarship offers and commitments to such schools as Columbia University and Cal Poly.  

Because college recruitment prep is more important than ever, Brad co-founded a full-time service to specialize in this process: Athlos College Coaching. Together with his co-founder Joe Accordino, who won an EMMY during a 10-year career at ESPN, they use their knowledge in recruiting, communication, and marketing to maximize student-athletes’ chances of playing college golf.  Learn more at
