Hi, I'm new here so sorry if I'm posting in the wrong section.

I'm trying to figure out the best way to use statistics to estimate potential in athletes for recruitment purposes.

What would be the best approach to doing that? Regression analysis?

Any ideas?

(I was thinking using several variables from the athlete's history to estimate possibly where they could eventually get. Multiple regression popped into my head but I would love direction, I'm not super experienced with statistics but have taken a few classes so I know a lot of the foundational stuff).
