Dark Horse Sports Recruiting Mission Statement

“Helping student-athletes play the sports they love, at places they can excel, and at prices they can afford”

Our process helps talented student-athletes leverage their position to receive the maximum merit and need-based athletic and academic scholarships at their target schools.

At Dark Horse Recruiting, each client is specially paired with a personal recruiting mentor who will work directly with them to navigate the athletic recruiting process and get into the best program possible. Our mentors develop close relationships with their students and work as hard as they do to place them.

Mentors rely on the Dark Horse network as well as their own to reach out to coaches via phone, email, and in face-to-face meetings. Coaches will know exactly what our students are capable of.

Dark Horse Recruiting prides itself on its academic advantage. Each of our clients will be coached and educated on what it takes to make a great application, how to think about picking a school and major, how to successfully apply, and where to find the most scholarship aid.
