Steven Binder speaks with college coaches and administrators nationwide and has found that they are all after the same thing: for parents and their student athletes to be realistic about the opportunity to play at the next level. 

As a collegiate recruiting advocate, Steven has been helping and advising high school student athletes with the recruiting process for over 30 years, placing thousands of student athletes at the college level.  When it comes to the students, parents, and coaches who are involved in the collegiate athletic recruiting process, there’s nothing Steve hasn’t seen. 

As a former college basketball academic all-american nominee from Curry College and the father of two collegiate athletes, Binder knows how complex the process can be for high school students and their families.  Plus, with conducting recruiting seminars, providing individual guidance and running showcases, his advice is valuable to people taking action in this process. To help, Steven wrote “Your Recruiting Playbook, Maximize Your Opportunities to Play College Sports”. The Playbook is a step-by-step guide on how to get recruited for college sports. Steven is also featured on ESPN & WFAN as a college recruiting expert.    

"YOUR RECRUITING PLAYBOOK…Maximize Your Opportunities To Play College Sports by Steven Binder, is a simple, step by step guide of how to get recruited for college sports. It can help you play any sport at the NCAA Division 1, 2 or 3 levels. A must read for any student, parent, coach or guidance counselor. It will definitely help you get recruited."

"Innis Arden was fortunate to have Steven Binder speak to a group of parents and teenagers at the club. The information he enlightened us with in an hour and a half was priceless. As a father of a student athlete in high school I had no idea of how to begin the college recruiting process. After listening to Steven and reading his book I now have a clear direction on how to proceed and what steps to take. His dedication to helping student athletes is amazing! Thank you Steven."
