Our Mission

When Sam and I founded College Sports Advisors, we wanted to take this company in a different direction relative to our competitors. Free of conflicting interests, CSA invests solely in the individual and the family to find the best academic and athletic fit for our student-athletes. CSA's only focus is recruitment; we do not have any financial relationships with travel teams, workout facilities, or showcases, putting us in a unique position to advise our clients and make the best recommendations for their future.
