If you have the athletic ability, the academic background, and determination
to play at one of the country's prestigious academic schools but are unsure of
how to use your athletic ability to your advantage, there is a good chance I
can help you reach your goal. To understand more about how I might be able to
help you, we need to learn about each other. The best way to do this is to simply click

conversation by phone.
Being recruited by a selective school
According to NCAA.org,
on average there are about 20 high school seniors for every freshman collegiate
roster position available. With selective schools drawing applicants from all
over the country and with their limited athletic budgets, their coaches are only
able to see a fraction of the players who might be able to play for them. Knowing
this can be discouraging even for highly qualified student-athletes.
But what if you have excellent academic qualifications, with an SAT over 2100,
AP classes, and extra-curricular accomplishments? Unfortunately, that just makes
you an average applicant for the most prestigious colleges and universities.
You may be accepted but again the odds are against you. For example, on average
the eight Ivy League schools accept only 12.5% of those that apply. Also discouraging.
The Athletic Advantage
If you have what a college coach is looking for in an athlete and a college coach
at one of the top academic schools recruits you, your chances of being accepted
up dramatically. The good news is that not only can athletics be used to help
gain admission to prestigious colleges, but it also means you will be able to
continue playing the sport you love at the collegiate level.
The problem is that most families have no experience in knowing how to go about using their athletic advantage. That is where I come in.
For me to be able to be of help to you, you would need to have the recommendation of a coach who believes that you have the ability to play at the next level. In addition, you would need to be challenging yourself academically with college prep courses while maintaining a GPA in the 3.5 range or above. Finally, you will need to be on track to score a minimum of 1200 for Critical Reading and Math on the PSAT/SAT or 26 on the ACT.
When should you start a program?
You should start a program as soon as you are confident of four elements: you
have the athletic ability, you will meet the minimum academic
standards, you have good character and a positive attitude,
and you have the desire and determination to play in college.
There is no reason to invest time and money into getting recruited if
any of these elements is missing, but every reason to begin once they
are in place, regardless of grade level.
The first step
First we need to have a conversation, at no cost to you, to learn about each other and the recruiting process. The Recruiting Overview conversation will cover the four steps of the recruiting process, NCAA regulations including when coaches can contact prospects, the requirements necessary to be a recruited athlete, the role of the NCAA Clearinghouse, and the number of opportunities in your sport.

here to fill out a simple form to get the process started. Remember, you only get one chance to get recruited and the earlier you start, the better your chances are. I look forward to talking to you.
Ivy Recruiting - Your Athletic Advantage
What does it take to be recruited at elite academic colleges? Do you have the passion and drive to compete for four years? Do you want to be part of a team at the college level while getting a superb education? Do you have an athletic talent that will make you stand out among others that have the ability to play at the next level? Tom Chandler has the knowledge, skill, and experience and a successful track record to get a student-athlete recruited into the most highly selective colleges and universities in the country.
Many acclaimed coaches from top collegiate schools have enough confidence in Mr. Chandler that they will make an effort to see his athletes compete. The list of colleges and universities includes Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Penn, Stanford, Duke and Dartmouth at the Division I level and Amherst, Williams, Middlebury, Wash U, MIT and Swarthmore at the Division III level. These are just a few of many elite universities and colleges that have coaches who have been in contact with Tom Chandler about getting his athletes recruited and accepted into their schools.
Tom Chandler, under his business name of Ivy Recruiting, is perhaps the only recruiting adviser who specializes 100% on athletes that put academics first. He has over 250 athletes who have been able to continue their career at prestigious academic institutions, including over 30 athletes competing on an Ivy League team for many sports including;

Ivy Recruiting clients receive insight into the role of the Patriot League and Ivy League Academic Index and how it affects the acceptance rate of recruited athletes. Tom Chandler provides the strategy and tactics for athletes to develop options where they can use the sport they love to be admitted to elite academic colleges. With acceptance rates at some of these prestigious institutions under 10%, many of those athletes who had the ability to compete academically and athletically at elite academic schools would not have had the opportunity to play in college without Mr. Chandler’s help. With the six graduating classes of 2005 through 2010, 186 of 191 Ivy Recruiting athletes who enrolled in an Ivy Recruiting program had the opportunity to continue their sport at colleges where they otherwise would likely have been considered a very smart but ordinary applicant without the benefit of their athletic talent.
Tom Chandler’s education background consists of:
- B.A., Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, majoring in Economics
- M.B.A., University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, majoring in Marketing
