Web Star Recruits is a group of former college coaches, athletes, and professional athletes that guide student athletes through the college recruiting process. Our philosophy at Web Star is to be proactive. We evaluate transcripts, athletic talent, body composition (depending on the sport for times and positions), and then contact over 150 schools for the student athlete in order to find the best fit both academically and athletically. We make an unbiased 3rd party recommendation to college coaches. We educate parents and athletes about the entire recruiting process. 98% of all the athletes we’ve worked with made a college team with about $19,000 dollars in aid.
Joe Ryan is the CEO and founder of Web Star Recruits. He is a former college wrestling Head Coach with 25 years of coaching experience at Ohio State, Rutgers, Army, Wagner, Seton Hall University and high school level. He has had several top 25 recruiting classes and was named coach of the year five times. Coach Ryan assisted Ohio State to a NCAA 2nd place in 2008. He left coaching so he could watch his daughter play college volleyball. In that time, he discovered that there was a need for an organization that could assist student-athletes (and their parents) through the college recruiting process. In four short years, Web Star Recruits has become a nationwide company with a network of coaches, athletes, and professional athletes in 16 different sports.
One of the newest additions to the Web Star Recruits staff is Section 9’s very own Terry Madden. Terry is a Pine Bush High School graduate. After a successful 4 year college wrestling career, Madden coached at Hofstra University and at the United States Military Academy. While at Hofstra, Madden coached numerous NCAA Div. 1 qualifiers and 2 NCAA All-Americans. At West Point, he was able to assist in bringing 3 athletes to the NCAA tournament, in one of the tougher conferences in the country, EIWA. As an athlete, Madden was a 2x All-American, and the first and only NCAA Champion in New York City for Hunter College. During his college career, he was also a University Freestyle All-American in 2006. Terry will serve as the VP of Social Media as well a Wrestling Recruiting Expert for Web Star Recruits.
