For six years, the National Underclassmen Combine has given high school football prospects the opportunity to showcase their abilities and get early exposure with colleges from Division I to Division III. As part of a partnership with Rivals.com, the NUC showcases top freshmen, sophomores and juniors to get them the type of exposure they need to get recruited at the collegiate level.
Athletes attending the combines can participate in all scheduled events, including the 40-yard dash, shuttle run, vertical jump, broad jump, bench press tests, individual workout periods for each football position and one-on-one and three-on-three competitions.
Other benefits of attending an NUC combine: Experienced football coaches run the events, they feature certified timers, athletes compete against the best from around the country, awards are presented at each event and there are Elite 100 camps at the end of the combine season.
Rivals.com representatives will attend as many combines as possible to evaluate athletes for POSSIBLE inclusion in the Rivals.com prospect database. Rivals.com will also accept highlight tapes from each combine. Top athletes from the combines will be featured on the Rivals.com sites if they are believed to have Division I potential.
