How to earn an athletic scholarship yourself without relying on "connected coaches"

If it doesn't work for you, we'll refund 100% of your money.

Featured in...

Here's the deal...

The recruiting process is not AS complicated as people want you to think it is.

Why do they want you to think it's complicated?

So they can sell you more recruiting "stuff" and take more money out of your pockets.​

The simple truth?

If you...

  • Are capable of playing collegiate sports

  • Know how to find schools that need you on their team

  • Prove to coaches that you're the solution to their championship woes

  • Make it easy for schools to recruit you

(or if you're a parent and this describes your athlete) won't have any issue earning a scholarship.

And you know the craziest part about the recruiting process?

You don't need a coach with "connections."

You don't need fancy software.

You don't need to travel all over the country.

You don't need a "personal website."

You've been convinced that you need these things to succeed in the recruiting process.

But you don't.

You're likely already doing 60% of the right stuff. You just need a little more information to help fill in

some of the gaps.

But let me ask you a question...

Are you in full control of your recruiting process?

Do you know exactly how you're going to earn the interest of coaches and land multiple scholarship offers?

If you answered're in for a treat.

Because I've taught hundreds of athletes (and their parents) how to get results like this:


Wanted to update you on my recruiting process. I went from having a few interested schools to having more than a dozen!


I just wanted to let you know that I just committed to my top school! I found your system and advice to be super helpful, especially the 10 words email. Thank you so much! 


Thanks for everything. Had nothing before you came along, now I have many schools interested and about to get my first two offers.

Have any more questions?

How long will it take to get a response?

You should be able to get a response within 15-30 days of outreach (depending on if it's a quiet period or not, and whether coaches are allowed to email you or not). 

How much money will I need to spend on software?

$0. We'll utilize free software for everything.

Who is this for?

Any athlete (or parent of an athlete) that is interested in playing collegiate baseball or softball at the D1, D2, D3, Junior College, or NAIA level.

Who is this not for?

Athletes in any sport besides baseball and softball.

What if I don't play for a travel team?

This system can still work. The best combination is some sort of travel ball & the BB system, but travel ball is not 100% required for the system to work. This system can drastically reduce the amount of time and money you need to spend on travel ball.

What if I don't have time to send emails?

Let's break it down.

3 emails = 15 minutes of work

3 emails per day for 30 days = 90 emails in 1 month with 15 minutes per day

You WILL see results by then, if not much earlier.

If you aren't willing to put 15 minutes per day in, then collegiate sports likely aren't a good fit for you.

What if I don't know anything about high school or collegiate sports?

You don't need any prior knowledge of high school or collegiate sports to make this work for you. I'll teach you everything you need to know.

And you may be thinking, "Well that's great, Jack...but what types of schools does this work for? Does this work for Division 1 schools?"


I've personally used this system to earn interest (and scholarship offers) from Mississippi State, Baylor, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Nebraska, USC, Virginia Tech, Connecticut, amongst others.

And athletes - just like you - are doing the same.

Oklahoma's coach personally said to me: "I wish everyone was doing what you're doing. That would make my life so much easier."

This is how you win in the recruiting process.

You make every coach's life easier by showing them exactly where they can find the solution to their problem. But I'm getting ahead of myself...


You're probably wondering, who are you and why should I listen to you?


That's a fair question...

After all, most recruiting "experts" are old guys who think they're God's gift to travel ball.

I'm not an old guy. I'm not a travel ball coach. I'm not some SUPER-DAD-COACH-OF-THE-YEAR.

No - I'm just a normal dude who was in your shoes, not that long ago.

My name is Jack Kruger.

I'm currently playing professional baseball in the Texas Rangers organization.

You can see my MLB profile here.

I've also been featured in the New York Times and the Profile (and a few others).

In high school, my family did everything we were "supposed to do" in the recruiting process.

I played for a top travel team. I traveled all over the country. We spent thousands of dollars. I sent dozens of emails. I went to every showcase in the country (even invite-only ones like PG National).

And I was a decent player. Here were my senior high school year stats at a competitive southern Californian baseball program:

- 33 games played

- .343 average

- .417 OBP

- 37 RBI

- 8 HR

So I was a pretty good player AND I did everything I was "supposed to do" in the recruiting process.

The results: a weak scholarship offer, and a couple of walk on spots.

Are you kidding me?

We gave up every free weekend we had, spent thousands of dollars, traveled all over the country...


Of course, at the end of the day, I'm grateful that I even had an opportunity.

But like most of the families who experience the recruiting process, we left disheartened and frustrated.

Luckily, the story doesn't end there.

I'll spare you the details, but I ended up at the University of Oregon. After a rough first year, I ended up bouncing back to Orange Coast College - a junior college in southern California.

This was my second, and final, chance at the recruiting process.

In high school, I thought the recruiting process was rigged.

I'm not on the right team - that's why I'm not getting interest from coaches.

I'm not using the right software - that's why I'm not getting interest from coaches.

Emailing coaches doesn't work - that's why I'm not getting interest from coaches.

Turns out, none of that was true.

(People say "email doesn't work." Hate to break it to you, but hundreds of athletes are using emails to land the same opportunities you're hoping and wishing for. If email doesn't work, it's because you're doing it wrong.)

So how did I go from failing in the recruiting process to receiving interest from DOZENS of D1 programs?

After hundreds of showcases, tournaments, and emails - I knew I had to change my approach.

I was desperate.

So I started testing things. Like a mad scientist.

What if I target this type of school?

What if I send this video?

What if I mix this...with this...?

And then...

It happened.

A response.

From a D1 college coach.

I pinched myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming.


So I doubled down on my new technique...

And guess what happened?

More responses from D1 coaches.

Now fast forward to this moment...

You're reading this website page...

And I'm telling you about the system I've been optimizing, perfecting, and testing over the last 5 years.

In an even shorter amount of time, I've taught hundreds of athletes how to earn interest from their favorite schools, and land scholarship offers from schools they've only dreamt about.

I'm talking the BIG DAWGS...

SEC. ACC. Big-12. Pac-12.

And based on all of my failures and victories...

I created the Baller Builder system.

The BB system works even if you don't know anything about the recruiting process.

It works even if you can't travel all over the country for tournaments & showcases.

Heck, it even works if you've never talked to a college coach before.

Bottom line is:

The BB system flat out works.

If you're good enough to play collegiate baseball or softball...


The BB system can turn your dream of playing college sports into a reality.

Here's a peek of what you get inside:

  • The ultimate goal of the recruiting process

  • The magic word no one talks about that changes the whole dynamic of your career

  • How to separate yourself from every other player and stand out in a sea of competition

  • A completely new way of thinking about the recruiting process

  • How to evaluate your skill level accurately

  • How to figure out which schools are more likely to respond to your emails

  • How to make high-quality recruiting videos yourself for $0

  • Why email works, and which coach you should email

  • The primary reason your emails aren’t getting responses right now

  • Should I put statistics in my email?

  • The exact words to use in your email (and the components of an effective email to coaches)

  • What NOT to say in your emails or phone conversations

  • Special advice for freshman and sophomores (dealing with younger ages)

  • The strategy that takes coaches from “sort of interested” to “I need you on my team, NOW”

  • How to impress a coach on a phone call (and how to get over the fear of talking to him)

  • How to use texting to your advantage (and avoid the awkward interactions)

  • The BEST way to use social media so you’re not unintentionally hurting your chances

  • How to gauge whether a coach is seriously interested or not

  • I got invited to an individual school camp...should I go?

  • How to use leverage to move the coach from “interested” to “scholarship offer”

  • The ins and outs of scholarship negotiation

  • Real example situations from players, and how to handle each of them

  • What to expect on a school visit and how to impress the coaches

  • Advice on making the final decision (from someone who’s been in your shoes)

And if you have any questions along the way, just shoot me a message on Twitter: @baller_builder

I'm very active and will do everything in my power to help you succeed.

So, how much does it cost?

As you can imagine, something this powerful is NOT going to be free.

And of course, there are other routes to earn that coveted scholarship.

You can travel all over the country, find one of the few coaches that actually has connections, spend a bunch of money on showcases & tournaments, and hope for the best (it may or may not work for you).

Or you can join Baller Builder.

But I want to give you an alternative option since there are so many money grabbers out there making empty promises like, "I can hook you up with a bunch of coaches" and "Our software will end your recruiting woes."

(All of the college coaches I've spoken to have bailed on software platforms because they don't work. I even looked into building a platform at one point, only to have dozens of college coaches tell me they just don't work for this kind of recruiting.)

So instead of charging you $1000+ like some recruiting service or showcases...


At the moment, the price of Baller Builder is $97. One time payment.

60-day Guarantee: If you're unhappy with the course, I will refund 100% of your money. You MUST implement the system and show proof that you did. Once proof (screenshots) are sent, the refund will be granted immediately. Just send me a message at @baller_builder on Twitter.


First off, thanks for all your advice on recruiting and sending emails out. I have been using some of your strategies and started talking back and forth to about an additional 10 schools since I implemented your advice.

Asked to remain anonymous

Just want to say thank you! You have given me more info and tactics than NCSA and I paid quite a lot of money for that!


You have no clue how well your tips work. These past few days have been amazing recruiting wise! Thank you so much.


Even though I've sat through countless recruiting seminars, I definitely learned a few things. 


The advice you gave for phone calls worked so well. The conversation flowed so smoothly and we were really getting somewhere. Thank you so much.


Gold on top of gold on top of gold.

That's it...and if there's something you want to know...

Just hit me up on Twitter: @baller_builder

A quick heads up:

$97 is the current price.

Don't hold it against me if you come back another time and see a higher price.

I raise it occasionally.

Excited to see you crush your goals and dreams. College sports are as fun as people say they are.
