Is live streaming games for College Coaches the newest trend for recruiting?

    Camera recording on ever diamond. I noticed a lot of older team's having one or more camera either recording or live streaming games. I was talking to one parent who was live streaming for a couple college coach's. We both were wondering once things get back to normal will College Coaches still use live streaming as a way to evaluate player's?

    I'm aware we have a few college coaches on the forum and hoping maybe they can give us some feedback on this topic. We're all aware that a lot college budget may be cut and could easily see this as the new trend.

    I personally believe live streaming is going to be a trend and covid -19 has accelerated the writing on the wall. I also believe many college recruits of the future will be seen by some type of live streaming services way before they talk to a College Coach.

    Athletes Go Live is a powerful tool. College coaches can sit back and stream games instead of using up their visits to the fields. They can see a lot watching the live streams and find out if that athlete they are watching is worth a trip to the diamonds. I feel this is the future of recruiting and COVID just helped it out even more. Athletes Go Live is powerful for a travel team because you see who logged in, what game they watched, who they logged in to see, How long they watched, how many games they watched, and if they recorded any games. Very powerful if used correctly. Our teams recruiting coordinator has mastered the AGL system and we will continue to utilize it till something better comes along. If you need more info on AGL reach out to me and myself and Gene our recruiting coordinator can try and help you out. After all he is on their advisory board. :)
