How to successfully balance college sports vs pro opportunites

As we travel the world, we always meet with recruits that have a dream of playing professionally in their respective sport, and although we never want to rain on anyone’s dreams, the reality is that working on a parallel path is the best route to take to compare what options you have on both sides and make a viable decision that is best for you. We had the opportunity to work with Odysseus (Ody) Alfa, and incredibly bright young footballer at Harrow School in London, had incredible grades, played for QPR’s Academy, and was on the path to become a pro footballer.  However, he knew the reality of his chances of getting a contract that was worth giving up a quality education in the US or UK. We started working with Ody in July of 2016 and over the next four months we connected him to Princeton University of San Francisco Boston College Wake Forest Penn State University Wisconsin Santa Clara University Duke University Ohio State University University of New Hampshire Brown University University of North Carolina Northeastern University Columbia University Stanford University Many of these schools offered a substantial scholarship, if not a full ride, however, after meeting with his club in Jan 2017, he was offered a six figure contract with QPR and decided to stay on with the club and has since been playing with QPR U-23s. Ody shared how this process helped him make an informed decision and ultimately couldn’t pass up a six figure salary a year for a scholarship worth in some cases up to $70k a year. However, the fact is that... read more

Welcome to Ethos College

We are excited to welcome you to Ethos College, the leading college recruiting company in the world.  As we have continued to present at more schools around the world and talk with more interested families, the need to expand our recruiting services into other sports became more and more evident.  As we have expanded into basketball, tennis, sailing, track and field, and other sports, we felt that we needed to find a name that didn’t limit ourselves in that endeavor. Because of that, we wanted to find a name that signified our mission for academics first was one that would take us to the next level.  We now have experts in all sports working with us and providing expertise that will allow us to continue our level of performance (100% of our recruits have received an offer). Our motto of Motivate. Educate. Graduate, also clearly defines our mission.  In order to be successful as a student athlete, one must be motivated in going the extra mile to be successful on the field, the court, in the pool, etc.  We help ensure that all of our athletes are prepared and motivated to make the transition to college – Motivate.  Since the academics leads this entire process, the real reason you are going to college is to get an education – Educate.  Lastly, no matter how good you are in your respective sport, the degree you get upon graduation will take you much further in your life than sport usually does – Graduate. We will continually update our blog with great features about our travels, info about schools, and other great posts about various... read more
