It is important to be honest and accurate in your questionnaire responses and take the time to outline your answers to be as thoughtful and thorough as possible. 

Additionally, players can earn points with letters of recommendation submitted by family members, teammates, coaches, or managers.


Players can earn a total of 5 points in the “Intangibles” category.

  • What unique personality traits/attributes do you empbdy that will benefit your program at the collegiate level? What are some weaknesses you want to overcome?

  • Share your thoughts on the collegiate esports space as it is today.

  • What advice would you give to high school underclassmen about the collegiate recruitment process?

  • Who would you identify as your primary mentor up to this point in your esports career?

Additionally, players will be expected to explain why they believe they are a Stay Plugged In Coca-Cola All-Star.
