Meet Chris:

Chris Krause founded NCSA Athletic Recruiting now Next College Student Athlete in 2000 with a passion to help turn dreams into a reality. Since it began, NCSA has helped more than 100,000 student-athletes commit to colleges with 8 billion in scholarships awarded to NCSA athletes. NCSA has quickly become the leader in helping match college coaches with qualified high school athletes through education and technology and is now part of the Reigning Champs family of purpose-driven companies assisting the Collegiate athletic community- building the world’s first Athletic Recruiting Network with a mission of Athleadership- Empowering leaders through sports.

Chris realized his passion for recruiting after his own determination and hard work paid off and he earned a full football scholarship to play in the SEC at Vanderbilt University. After graduating in four years, Chris made it his goal to make sure no other student-athlete gets left behind and misses out on the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play college sports in return for education and lifelong empowerment.
