USP: Tell us about your background. Where are you from? Where did you grow up?
Dylan: I was born in London, UK but was raised in Barbados.
USP: Where did you go to college?
Dylan: I attended MSU-Texas for two years before completing my final two years at The University of Alabama Huntsville.
USP: Who have been your strongest influences in life?
Dylan: My father and my close friends have definitely been my strongest influence.
USP: What led you to this career? How did you end up at USP?
Dylan: My journey with USP began in 2014 where I attended a USP Showcase in Weston, FL. It was a fantastic event. I was a former client of USP in 2017 – they facilitated my transfer from MSU- Texas to UAH. I had an outstanding experience with them. This year they needed a presence in the Caribbean and I reconnected with Thomas. We both felt this would be a great step to take and I am so happy to be a part of this team.
USP: How long have you been at USP and what has been your proudest experience since working with us?
Dylan: I started working with USP in June of this year and my proudest experience was signing the #1 junior tennis player from my country at the time. It felt very special just like how I felt when I got my first client.
USP: What is the main mistake you see in the recruiting process?
Dylan: The main mistake I see in the recruiting process is the focus and promotion of ones statistics/playing level to gain entrance into a University instead of genuinely discovering what overall criteria is important to you as a student-athlete, in a University and in an Athletic program and if that criteria is the best possible mutual fit.
USP: What is your most important advice for a student and for the parents?
Dylan: My most important advice is to start your recruiting process early, trust it, and understand that everyone’s process is unique.
