Thank you for your interest in College of DuPage football. Home of a top-10 NJCAA ranking, 24 NFL alum, and 16 current D1 athletes. Located in the heart of the Chicago suburbs and near two major airports, College of DuPage has a setting that no other junior college program can match. Also unlike most junior college teams COD is an independent program with no conference affiliation and as such we have no out-of-state roster limits. If you are also considering other junior colleges, ask about their roster limits. Combined with our world class facilities and track record of excellence, DuPage is a top destination for top athletes.
Who do we recruit?
We actively seek and recruit high school senior athletes with

Where do we recruit?
As a staff we focus our attention on the state of Illinois and the Midwest region but we will look and recruit nationally for difference-makers.
When do we recruit?
Year-round. As a staff we are able to visit high schools in the winter and spring. Actively recruited prospects are invited to visit our games in the fall and then must attend a formal visit during a January-March window before signing. As these dates become available they will be posted under the 'visit info' tab. These visits are invitation only. In late spring we will have open tryouts for walk-on players.
