Recruiting, Matching, and Consolidating: The Expansion of Football Recruiting and its effects on Industry Structure

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

College football recruiting is becoming an increasingly competitive pursuit, and some schools spend millions of dollars annually to attract top talent. These trends have led to a more national recruiting market, as resource-rich teams appear more willing to search the nation to fill specific needs or to attract the best overall talent. While existing research has examined the practices of recruiters and team-level outcomes, sociologists of organizations and labor markets have largely ignored this “industry.” However, it seems to mirror the increasing competition for talent in other human-capital intensive industries, like software engineering, university teaching and research, and other professional services. Using comprehensive data from NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team player rosters from 2000-2015, I examine the ways in which teams navigate this increasingly national labor market, and the effects on team performance and industry structure. Results show that teams from resource rich contexts navigate the national high school talent pool, with important implications for the structure and consolidation of the industry in the hands of fewer schools over time.
