Featuring the Best Performers from Blue-Grey Combines and a Track Record Second to None
Prospects featured in the Red Zone have an advantage over just about everyone else competing for scholarships and exposure. Last year we featured over 700 2016 graduates, with nearly 350 taking it all the way to a football scholarship. Their efforts on the field and in the classroom were recognized and rewarded, and their exposure in The Red Zone was a big factor in making this possible. Remember that outstanding participants from our Blue-Grey Combines are eligible for a Red Zone profile. (However, we realize that certain deserving prospects may not be able to attend a combine. If you haven't been able to attend but feel you have what it takes to be a Red Zone Prospect, please click here.)
As most college recuriters say, The Red Zone "has become an absolute must for college football programs to recruit quality prospects effectively." Don't forget that colleges are investing on average $30,000 per year for each scholarship athlete. More than 650 colleges utilize The Zone for recruiting. Hours of research evaluation are spent by recruiters on our site.
Signing up for the Red Zone will allow you to set up and update your own profile on the Red Zone website. It will help you let college coaches know you're out there with something to offer. (Coaches know The Red Zone contains all the outstanding Blue-Grey combine performers under one roof.) It will speed up the recruiting process for both the coach and the prospect, and it's a great tool for taking the first step in your quest for a scholarship (getting noticed). It doesn't matter how good you are if nobody knows you're out there.
Signing up for the Red Zone also guarantees you'll be selected for one of the Blue-Grey Super Combines. Maybe you'll even make it to one of the All-American Bowls and eventually end up wearing the cap of the school you've committed to, like the happy prospects in the photo.
The competition for scholarships and roster spots is so intense that you can never have too much exposure. The one-two punch of Blue-Grey combine participation followed by a Red Zone profile is a great way to gain exposure.
The rising cost of education and tough economic times have given rise to recruiting services. These services can help to an extent, but the cost to enroll is generally between $600 and $2500. Most football programs do not take stock in these services, as most of the football players featured are not high level prospects. Unlike our competitors, the cost to be a Red Zone prospect is only $99 for Blue-Grey combine participants who qualify based on their performance at the event.The Red Zone is the only service of its kind endorsed and recommended by Blue-Grey Football.
