Run Recruits, a company based in Ohio, is coming to the Iowa Wesleyan College campus to host a recruiting fair for high school cross country/track & field athletes and football players on Saturday, December 14 from 10am-2pm.  The event is open to high school seniors interested in competing in cross country/track & field and/or football at the college level.

College coaches will be present at tables for student-athletes to meet and learn more about the schools’ programs and the opportunities to compete at the colleges.  Parents and high school coaches are welcome as well.

The event is an opportunity for college coaches to get connected with aspiring student-athletes who are really looking to find a college that suits their needs academically as well as athletically.  This is an easy way for high school cross country/track & field and football athletes to get connected with college coaches.

Some schools that will be in attendance include Iowa Wesleyan College, Cornell College, Eureka College, Lake Forest College, Rockford University, Simpson College, Southwestern Community College, and William Penn University.
