College Recruiting

From time to time I receive request from colleges for information regarding athletes in their Junior and Senior years.  When I get them I will post their contact information here.  You can reach out for more information if you wish.

St Mary's U - Winona

Jake Malm here over at Saint Mary's University in Winona. Was wondering if I could connect with you on your current junior athletes? We're looking for our next crop of recruits (graduating class of 2022) and wanted to see if you felt any of your kids would be good for us to take a closer look at. Is there a best way to connect with you on this? I'm good with email text or call...whatever's easiest for you!

Thanks Coach!
