I would like to thank Premier Scouting especially Gene Grabiec, Wes Blanc and RRT Production for all that you did.
My granddaughter, Allison Mitchell, was an overlooked senior with 90 days before graduation. She was a standout basketball player at South Point H.S. in Ohio and in AAU. Nobody had heard of her or saw any tapes on her. I called Gene, he got things going and drove down the same day and gave us the paperwork that was needed. He came back down 2 weeks later and watched Allison play and took her paperwork back with him. Wes Blanc put her program together. She went online a few days later and got e-mails from 17 universities from New York to Nebraska. (2 years of work completed in less that 30 days).She signed with Div 1 Cleveland State last week.
Thanks to Gene and Wes I am the proud grandfather of Allison Mitchell a Cleveland State Viking.
Thanks again, H.C. Mitchell
Premier Scouting is an outstanding organization that can assist and enhance the scholarship capabilities of any athlete. Wes does a great job of keeping athletes abreast of what is happening and how to deal with recruiters to ensure that they obtain the best financial package available. I strongly recommend the utilization of Premier Scouting should your son or daughter wish to continue their athletic and academic career!
If your son or daughter is interested in playing a collegiate sport, we would highly recommend the services of Wes Blanc of Premier Scouting. Our daughter received a full ride basketball scholarship to the University of San Diego. We signed on with Wes when our daughter was a freshman. The insight that Wes has given us over the years to the recruiting process has been invaluable. He educated us on the right things to say, the right question to ask and what to look for in a good program. It is important that it is a good fit for your son/daughter, both academically and athletically. Whenever we had questions, Wes was always very responsive.
Just a letter to thank you for your and Craig Meinzer’s efforts regarding my son, Kenneth Heban.
Kenny is our oldest son and wanted to continue his baseball career in college after graduating from Central Catholic High School. Both my wife and I had no idea about the process or how to become familiar with it so that we could maximize the monetary benefits by way of scholarship and, in addition, to explore the possible college options. We had tried to research the matter informally, but found it very complicated and difficult.
At that point, we came in touch with Craig who met us and explained, generally, the college application process and Kenny’s prospects. He was very straightforward and honest about the whole situation.
After signing with Premier Scouting, Craig was in constant contact with us and Kenny about the process and the next steps to take. He was instrumental in Kenny receiving a baseball scholarship to Tiffin University.
Craig was also very helpful in accessing the academic qualities of the schools involved.
We were very satisfied with the services provided by Craig and Premier Scouting relating to Kenny’s decision to attend Tiffin University and play baseball at that institution.

Dear Mr. Blanc:
I want to thank you for helping my daughter to pursue her passion for golf while studying business in college. Premier Scouting delivered on its promise to generate awareness for student-athletes and to facilitate discussions with college coaches. These conversations led to many school visits and scholarship offers. We are delighted that Heather chose to attend the University of Dayton.
We wanted to thank you for your help and guidance in helping us with Jake's college search. He is signing with Mount Union and fulfilling his dream of playing college baseball. This local private Christian school is a perfect fit for him. This has been an education for us and now in hindsight we know we couldn't have done this on our own so thank you for all your insight and exposure. We wish we would have known about you when our oldest was in college.
Jim and Julie De Luca
I wanted to thank you for the exposure and the help you've given me in my college search. I've decided that Mount Union is a great fit for me academically and on the field. Your services have been very helpful in making school more affordable and making all those hours on the field and in the cages pay off. I'm really grateful.
Jake De Luca
Ian And Wes,
I just wanted to send you guys a note and say thank you. Your service has played a very large role in helping Jazmin increase her exposure. Jazmin had DI, II, III and NAIA schools contact her. Three of her final six schools were a direct result of your service, and The University of Tampa was one of the three.
Thanks again for everything, and best wishes to you both.
I have recently decided on a university. I have verbally committed to Cedarville University. They will be coming up for a signing on Wednesday the 2nd. I want to thank you for your help in my college search, and I appriciate the dedication you have to giving small town athletes the opportunity to fufill their dreams and play at the college level.
Wes & Gene:
I just wanted to finally drop you a note of thanks for all your efforts and assistance
over the past year with Scott's recruiting process.
I can honestly say that if he did not have the exposure your organization gives
an athlete he probably never would
have had the opportunity he now has at Washington & Jefferson College.
He is in a fine academic institution and in an excellent collegiate baseball program.
Gene, your assistance and extra effort to see him play and go to one of his showcases
was very impressive. I can say without reproach that you care about the atheletes
in your program.
Wes your thoughtful insight and experience was invaluable with the numerous questions
I had as the recruiting process intensified. I appreciate that immensely.
I wish your organization much success in the future and you'll probably see me back
in a few years with my youngest son.
Thanks again for everything.
Dear Premiere Scouting service,
First of all, I would like to say i found your program to be very useful and reliable. It was impressive how many colleges started to contacting me as soon as they did. I also had a great scout consultant to help me out, Sam Richardson. He was very informative and helpful. I could tell he really enjoys what he is doing and the sports that he scouts for. I recommend the Premiere Scouting Service and Sam Richardson as a scout consultant to anyone. Again, thank you for your help and support.
We are happy to advise you that Katie has made a verbal commitment to play golf for the University of Dayton. We are waiting on our financial aid package and will enroll with Dayton after we receive it. While Dayton was not our lowest cost option, it was the best fit for Katie.
Thanks to both of you for all of your help and guidance. You both more than delivered on your promises to us and your help was greatly appreciated. Please feel free to use me as a reference for your service. I found it very worth while and a good value.
Well, you can finally update Kelly's profile on the web page with the following: “Signed with Lesley University ”. After initially being contacted by over 80 Division III schools after just one mailing, we have finally completed the process and have sent in our deposit for Lesley U. When we started this process back in March, I never dreamed she would end up in Cambridge MA !!! Though the initial response was overwhelming, we responded to each and every inquiry with a phone call or e-mail. At this point, we narrowed our list down to about 15 schools we were really interested in, and sent them a highlight tape. 14 of the 15 schools that received her tape contacted us and wanted Kelly for their basketball program. From this point, we narrowed our list down again based on initial scholarship/grant money and location to 10 schools, all of which we applied for admission and were accepted. After informing the remaining schools where we needed to be on out of pocket expenses for tuition, we narrowed down to 4 schools whose award package met our requirements. Then the journey began!!! From Adrian MI to Cambridge MA , New Concord OH to Toccoa Falls GA , we visited each school, reviewed the academic and athletic programs and facilities each had to offer. All of the schools had at least something that made them stand out, but in the end, the opportunity to attend a university in Cambridge MA that is highly rated academically, whose campus intertwines with Harvard and Harvard Law school, and also affords her the opportunity to play basketball and receive significant scholarship/grant money was too good to pass up.
I would like to thank you, Daryl, and everyone at Premier Scouting for all you did for Kelly and me. The one thing I did not know when this started was how much time and effort it would take on my part to manage this process in order to broker the best deal possible. I appreciated the ability to talk with both of you throughout the process to review where we where, what should be my next step, and to just listen. Your leadership and guidance proved invaluable during this entire process, and contributed greatly towards a successful conclusion.
If I can be of help in the future to any prospective athletes and their parents on the value of the services provided by Premier Scouting, please let me know.
Dear Wes and Gene,
I am writing this letter for two reasons”
#1 – I would personally like to thank you for your services in getting my sons name and information out to the colleges. There is no way we could have reached the number of schools and had the number of quality contacts we had, without yourhelp. We heard from colleges and schools that we had to use the map to find where thaey were. The contacts we had helped my son choose a college that fits his interests and at the same time where he can play the sport he loves.
#2 – I highly recommend your services for any high school youth who is interested in playing college sports of any kind. Your walkin through the process with us, along with your continued contacts got my son so many offers that we were able to basically ask for what we wanted, and get it! My son will be playing football this fall at a private college near his home _ and get paid to get his degree! And while he is a super ball-player, he wouldn’t have had near the contacts had it not been for exposing his talents through Premier Scouting Services!
Thank you again for your services! Pease feel free to use my name as a reference; I give my permission to release my phone number and /or e-mail address in case any prospective clients would like to contact me directly!

We highly recommend Premier Scouting Service to anyone with a son or daughter that are planning on going to college. …………………… Our son, James, ended up choosing Cleveland State. James never would have picked Cleveland State had it not been for Premier Scouting …… To those of you reading this and thinking that you can do it yourself and save the money all I can say is DON’T DO IT! The sooner the resumes get out and the more colleges that they are sent to the better chance of your child getting some type of scholarship. We never considered Cleveland State and now, with the help of Premier Scouting, James has a full scholastic scholarship to Cleveland State and he will be playing on their golf team. We invested .. with Premier Scouting and in return our son is getting 5 year full scholastic scholarship valued at a $30,000-40,000. Not a bad investment!!
Don’t think about it to long, time is wasting away! You won’t be disappointed.

I am writing to thank you for your help with Kevin’s search for the right fit academically and athletically in a college environment. As you know, Kevin has decided to accept a ...position with the Indiana University baseball program. Your program helped him keep on track and organized in his search. We can see now that such organization is quite helpful for an athlete who does not fit into the traditional “box” from a recruiting standpoint. Kevin used the materials you provided to keep track of his contacts and when things looked a little bleak, he was able to go back to coaches who had made initial contact and establish further communication. I also really appreciated the opportunity to talk with you on the phone many times during the process. You were able to calm this nervous mom on several occasions.
Again, thank you for your help. Go Hoosiers!
“We want to thank you for all of the assistance you have given our Daughter Kelly…. Your service has been invaluable. As you are aware Kelly was actively recruited by dozens of schools due to your service promoting her talents. As a result …….she will not only be able to continue playing basketball but will also gain a top-notch education. Your guidance thru the NCAA recruiting procedures were very helpful…. Kelly shares our high opinion of...and your service and we would recommend your service to anyone………..
