An Annual Event

The Personnel Symposium

The Personnel Symposium is an event created with the intent to bring together the world of college football recruiting. This event is for the biggest names in football recruiting as well as those just beginning their journey in to the personnel side. Regardless of your current position, you will learn from some of the most experienced in the field on how they brought recruiting to the forefront of college football.

In 2018, this event brought over 60 of college football's top programs together for two days to discuss the ins and outs of current-day recruiting. This group included 180+ emerging and already thriving personnel members, 20+ speakers, multiple panels and sparked hours of conversation. Join us in 2019 to push this industry even further and help grow the personnel role! Register today
