What's Your Email Address? Colleges/Scouts Get a Glimpse Into Your Character!
By: Matt Bomeisl | matt@prospectwire.com

TAMPA - A few months ago, I wrote an article about how colleges watch your every move on social media when they are recruiting you.  Your behavior on social media can give a college a glimpse into what type of player he is REALLY recruiting.

But another thing can be used as a tool, and it's something you may never think:  your email address.

PLAYERS:  Make sure you think twice about what kind of email address you are giving to your high school coach, travel coach, and eventually colleges and scouts!  Think twice when you fill out a recruiting form, or camp registration form what email address that you use.  Letting a college coach know you like chasing after women so much that it is your email address can give them a glimpse that you may be a problem living on your own when you step on campus.  Yes I'm talking to you skirtchaser12@aol.com.

And yes, Step Brothers with Will Ferrell was a great movie.  Hilarious.  But you don't need to have any quotes from that movie as your email address.  Yes, I'm talking to you boatsandhoes@ymail.com.  If we didn't see these types of email addresses come through on our registration forms, I wouldn't be writing this article.

Also think twice about what email address you decide to create!  Things that are temporary like jersey numbers, school mascots, or your age shouldn't be used in your email address.  You will regret it later when you change jerseys, transfer schools, or have a birthday.  Don't make a college coach or MLB scout have to work to find out how to get in touch with you.  Keeping the same email address and phone number is a good thing - it allows the information that is "out there" on you to work in your favor.

Changing your email address may cause a college to have to work even harder to find out how to contact you after an email gets bounced back to him because you changed it!

Simplify your email, make sure it is permanent, and keep it as long as you can so people can get in touch with you.

Also, check your email EVERY DAY!  You never know what may be in there that is time sensitive.  A player who only checks his email once per month may miss a critical, time sensitive opportunity.

If you have a school email and a personal email, make sure whatever email you give out to colleges, scouts and recruiting services is the one you check OFTEN.
