WHY DO YOU NEED US?
Now all you have to do is choose which college or university is the “right” one. With over 1300 (in basketball) to choose from, 341 at the D1 level, 290 in D2 and over 400 in D3 – plus almost 300 more in NAIA and a growing number of programs competing at other levels – there are a lot of options. We have identified 130 “high academic” schools which are non-BCS (the super-major top ranked) schools. It is this list at which we seek to match players and coaches. And in almost every case, the first thing the coaches will say, after introductions and pleasantries, is “can you please send me your video, upcoming schedule, transcript and scores". You can prepare for that. But figuring out which schools to contact?
The resources for college information is plentiful in guidebooks, specially published magazines and annual reviews, and online databases and reviews. The key is matching the players and coaches. College coaches find players though direct communications received form the players, referrals from high school and aau coaches, seeing videos online, from scouting services which they pay a lot of money to receive exclusive and non-public reports, referrals from current players or friends, seeing players at tournaments, camps, and showcases. The decisions on which players to recruit are usually made by the end of the summer of a player’s Junior year – when they become “Rising Seniors” and are most often at the school’s camp, a national camp, a top national AAU tournament or Championships in Orlando, and at the Hoop Mountain Academic All-America camp.
