People have come to expect nothing less. After all, TheInsiders.com founder Jim Heckman invented the national college recruiting database with the help of Student Sports, the exclusive operator of the Nike Football Training Camps, in 1998. Heckman eventually parlayed that database, along with contributions from the top recruiting experts and scouts in the country, plus partnerships with FOX and Yahoo!, into the first complete national online sports network.
That network folded under different leadership and its domain was purchased by another, much smaller company, but the original Rivals team, led by Heckman, and including the original world-class engineering group, top executives, core recruiting group, top college team sites and all NFL team sites, as well as FOX and Yahoo, are back as TheInsiders.com and stronger than ever.
Operating on a cash-flow-positive basis, TheInsiders.com team covers its fifth National Signing Day with Scout, a national database that follows players from high school to the professional ranks and still has access to exclusive Nike Camp and Elite 11 Quarterback Camp data. The network is the official provider of recruiting coverage to SportsIllustrated. com and syndicates recruiting and team news to Yahoo!TheInsiders.comís online coverage is supplemented by glossy print magazines, including the National Recruiting Yearbook, which is included free with annual online subscriptions and memorializes the information fans have been following all year.
That information has been served up by the leading experts and scouts in the industry: Jamie Newberg (National editor), Greg Biggins (West), David Garvin and Josh Clark (Big 12 / Heartland), Chris Fetters (Northwest), Scott Kennedy (Southeast), Mike Bakas (Big East / Northeast), Chris Pool (Midwest), Max Emfinger (National), Student Sports (operators of Nike Football and Elite 11 camps), Kevin Lustgarten (junior college), Tracy Pierson and Greg Hicks (West Coast basketball) and the nationís most knowledgeable and well-known college basketball scout, Dave Telep. Because of exclusive access to Nike Football and Elite 11 quarterback camps, TheInsiders.com is the only network that offers authentic heights, weights and speeds. TheInsiders.com network is the only network that attends all major basketball tournaments; Telep and Pierson have first-hand knowledge of every top player in the country.
