Athletic Recruiting

Unlock Your Athletic and Academic Success with Compass!

A Message From Our Athletic
Recruiting Specialist—Symone Speech

Aspiring college athletes,

Do you dream of taking your game to the college level while also excelling in your academics? Well, I’m here to tell you that your dreams are closer than you think.

However, you will learn quickly that the athletic recruiting process and the college search can be very intense and overwhelming.

As a former professional volleyball athlete and 4-year starter at Georgetown University, I’m ready to be your guide on this incredible journey.

I’ve been in your shoes.

I know the thrill of competing on the court and the hustle of balancing academics. My experience over the last decade has taught me the ropes, and I’m here to share those lessons with you.

From navigating the college admissions maze to tackling the challenges of athletic recruitment, I’ve got your back. With my experience as a Volleyball Coach at Illinois’ top-ranked volleyball club, I’ve crafted a program that’s all about boosting your confidence, advocating for yourself, and finding that perfect balance as a student-athlete. I will also help you understand the ins and outs of NCAA rules, regulations, and eligibility to take the stress and anxiety out of your recruiting process.

We will be with you every step of the way to coach you through each phase of the process. This includes:

  • Review of your distinctive recruiting calendar
  • Evaluation of your academic portfolio
  • Development of your college list
  • Guidance for contacting coaches 
  • Assistance in developing your athletics resume
  • Assessment and advising on your video and film profile

By working with me and the rest of the Compass team, you’re not just getting a mentor; you’re gaining a partner who’s committed to your success both on and off the field. So, are you ready to turn your dreams into reality?

Excited to talk with you soon,
Symone Speech
