The Appalachia Prep Combine was the first recruiting platform that understood the need to help kids in rural markets gain exposure in recruiting due to being overlooked at national showcases. We match up well known recruits from urban markets vs. the best unknown recruits from rural markets. This concept has attracted players and college coaches from across the country to southern, WV.
