Parent Recommendations, the lifeblood of our business!

When we started this College Sports Recruiting and Name, Image and Likeness business in 2016 we knew that the pure joy we would get out of the process would be helping families and student-athletes fulfill their lifelong dream of playing athletics in college. That remains true today. We are honored so many of them have trusted us along the way. Here a just a few of the recommendations we have received along the way. We hope that in some way these recommendations will help ease your understanding of how we help athletes aspiring to be recruited, to those that are managing the Division I process to those handing Name, Image and Likeness needs, we are the perfect solutions to help you.

CEO, the Bedford Agency

“Over a year ago our family was introduced to Bryan Bedford and the Bedford Agency.   Once we signed with the Bedford Agency things start happening for our son Aden Kelley.  He received his first D1 football offer within a few weeks, and to date has received 23 offers before his commitment to Oklahoma State University.  Bryan is a walking encyclopedia of what the college recruiting process is all about.  He knows what colleges are looking for in a recruit both academically and in their athletic ability.  Bryan was there to guide us through the whole process. 

-Martin and Jennifer Kelly, parents of Aden Kelley, Oklahoma State University Signee Class of 2021 & U.S. Army All-American

Bryan gave us a plan and advised us on steps to take in the process. We committed as a family to “follow the plan” precisely as Bryan instructed. I believe Bryan was instrumental in helping Drew achieve his goal to play college football. I highly recommend the Bedford Agency for any recruiting assistance.

–Adam & Cassi Rosko, parents of Drew Rosko, University of Central Oklahoma signee, Class of 2019.

“”Bryan possesses a deep knowledge and understanding of the college recruiting process that is second to none.  Having worked on the staff of a Power 5 D1 Football program he understands what schools at all levels are looking for in recruits both athletically and academically.  What we valued the most is his honesty about our son’s ability and his potential as a student athlete.  Navigating the process and myriad of recruiting calendars and deadlines can be overwhelming at times but Bryan worked with us throughout the entire process and was always a phone call, text, or email away for answering any questions we had.  He truly wants what is best for your son or daughter and your family.  My advice to potential college athletes and families is the sooner you use The Bedford Agency the better.“

 -Todd and Rhonda Little, parents of Cameron Little, University of Arkansas Signee Class of 2021 & U.S. Army All-American (#1 Kicker in the country according to ESPN)

His integrity and ability to reach him at anytime are factors that are of upmost importance during the process.  Each step that was taken, Bryan was honest and only a phone call away.   To get the BEST for your child you should sign with the Bedford Agency. 


Bedford Agency partners with Productive Recruit to improve the recruiting experience for student-athletes

As we know the College Sports Recruiting process is going through arguably the most challenging period of time we’ve ever seen.  I am constantly getting messages from parents who are struggling to maintain contact with coaches, help with content and virtual recruiting, making informed decisions without taking visits and much more.  Honestly its exhausting for so many prospective student-athletes and families. 

During this time, while we have been supporting our current clients through a very challenging 2020 recruiting period, we have also been preparing for the future to assist well beyond. So, knowing the challenges numerous families were facing we sought out strategic partners and started discussions with several companies that we could assist with product development of a solution that would fight the needs we are seeing with our families, but also had a platform that we could easily incorporate into how we advise and assist the families across the country we support today. With that, I am pleased to announce our newest partnership with technology partner Productive Recruit a “All-In-One College Recruiting Toolkit”.  With this partnership all new families and student-athletes that join the Bedford Agency will have access to the Productive Recruit platform, which includes centralized coach search feature by sport, CRM tracking for all types of communication, and workflows for key recruiting activities.  For more information.

I love the quote from my friend Colin McAtee, CEO of Productive Recruit who describe the partnership this way: “Bryan has been doing amazing work with his athletes and we can’t wait to provide him with a platform that will accelerate his clients recruiting process”.

So this is exciting news for our families and one I am thrilled to introduce to our current families and student-athletes but also our new families who are navigating the college recruiting process and combined with our thought leadership around sport specific workflows and industry insight make this a tremendous partnership and one that will help countless families.
