We’ve been doing a lot of recruiting in recent years, but it’s only in recent months that we’ve started to see colleges that are really getting serious about recruiting talent and helping them to thrive in the next generation.
From top schools like Florida State, Ohio State, Texas, Texas Tech and more to mid-tier programs like USC, Michigan, and others, there are plenty of great programs to be found across the country.
The recruiting landscape is changing so quickly, and it’s easy to see why.
The average age of an incoming freshman at a college is 27 years old, according to the College Board, which also reports that about two-thirds of all incoming freshman students enroll in the fall.
Of the top 100 public colleges, 76% of the top 200 programs were founded in the past 10 years.
The majority of those programs are from the South.
This is all to say that we have an incredibly competitive recruiting landscape right now, and recruiting is a big part of why.
But if you are looking for a school to put your name on a recruiting poster, here’s a list of the best colleges and programs to get your name attached to.
