Hobsons, a key provider of comprehensive educational solutions for students and parents, today announced a new partnership with beRecruited, the largest free online destination connecting high school athletes and collegiate coaches, facilitating thousands of scholarships annually. Through this partnership, the millions of students using beRecruited's networking service can now see the complete picture of the schools they are considering due to the leveraged features of Hobsons' flagship student recruitment Web site CollegeView.com, as well as College Confidential, the Web's leading community for college students and their parents. Hobsons and beRecruited will essentially give students the ability to weigh a school on all its merits, athletic and otherwise, from one convenient location. Ultimately, Hobsons will assist in bringing the admissions office into the seven million connections between high school athletes and college coaches made through beRecruited.

CollegeView.com, a comprehensive online search tool for college-bound students, features a database of unbiased information about all accredited two- and four-year institutions in the United States. Hobsons reaches more than 27 million visitors with its network of Web sites, with more than 200 million page views. Hobsons' reach will now expand to the more than 500,000 student-athletes who use beRecruited.com, enabling them to access information about schools that are highlighted on CollegeView.com and raising the level of exposure for all two- and four-year institutions across the United States.

Students will also be able to view and interact with college information directly from their peers thanks to a link with College Confidential. Posts from College Confidential will appear on a school's page within beRecruited, and beRecruited will have a presence in the College Confidential community, including its Athletic Recruits forum.

"Through this partnership, Hobsons and beRecruited will now be able to ensure student-athletes have all the comprehensive college information they need to make the right collegiate decision balancing their decision from an athletic and academic perspective. Hobsons is excited to have this unique opportunity to help connect student athletes with the right schools at a time when they are actively considering their higher education options," Jeremy Cooper, IMS managing director, Hobsons.

Access to the new information from CollegeView and College Confidential will be located on beRecruited's social networking page. Site visitors will be able to access all of the resources available from CollegeView and College Confidential while they are speaking with friends and teammates about their college athletic program choices.

"Our services complement and match each other perfectly, and together we can offer unique content and resources to both sets of constituents," said beRecruited President Jeff Cravens. "beRecruited has more than 500,000 aspiring high school student-athletes looking for the right college opportunity; Hobsons' services help universities across America recruit and enroll the appropriate students. This partnership is a natural fit."

Both Hobsons and beRecruited will integrate more benefits of their partnership into the current beRecruited service. In the future, the organizations hope to offer collegiate athlete hopefuls more resources to help make the right college decision easily.
