Hudl’s High-Tech Recruiting Changing the Game

February 2, 2010

This Wednesday’s National Letter of Intent signing day will be different from past years. High-tech recruiting advancements have shortened the time it takes for college recruiters to evaluate high school prospects. At the forefront of this shift to high-tech recruiting are websites like Hudl.com that use the same video technology that powers sites like YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix.

About Hudl (also from the press release):

Hudl was initially released in 2007 to help major colleges and professional teams win. After the first season of use by the University of Nebraska and the New York Jets, it was apparent that coaches at all levels could benefit from the powerful video tools Hudl offers.

In 2008, Hudl was released for high schools, colleges, and youth teams, with the mission to bring the same tools used on the professional level to coaches across the country. Today, over 500 teams from youth sports to the NFL use Hudl to help them dominate the game.
