DO YOU WANT TO PLAY

COLLEGE BASKETBALL?

ABOUT COLLEGE BASKETBALL RECRUITING

College basketball offers athletes the opportunity to play against high-level competition while also studying at a University. College basketball is considered one of the major collegiate sports and can help you become a professional in the NBA (WNBA for women) or around the world!

 

Some college coaches may target specific individuals based on their work ethic and hustle, while other college coaches may want to recruit the best shooters or rebounders. More importantly,  your goal as a student-athlete should be  to establish relationships with college coaches of interest to get a better understanding of what their recruiting needs are.

 

If you want to maximize your exposure and be seen by college coaches you need to build an online recruiting profile with an NCAA verified third party. Your profile allows college coaches to properly assess you as a prospect because it includes all the information they want to see such as  your recruiting video, key stats, academic level (GPA) and contact information.​

WHY PLAY COLLEGE BASKETBALL?

  • Maximize your potential: Learn and apply the values that are useful in all aspects in life. College sport teaches you the importance of teamwork, leadership, goal setting, work ethic, time management, discipline and handling pressure.

  • Develop relationships and make connections: The network you create from your sport can open the door for many things in life including job opportunities, friendships and partnerships.

  • Live a healthier lifestyle: Regular exercise helps boost immunity and contributes to overall physical health. 

MEN'S BASKETBALL SCHOLARSHIP STATISTICS

The following table numerically summarizes the availability of men's basketball scholarships across the United States. Note: This shows the number of maximum scholarships a college can provide. This is called “fully funded”. However, many colleges do not have the maximum and therefore the number of total scholarships can be less than shown in the table. Athletic scholarships at colleges change yearly with increases and decreases, so you cannot fully determine who has available scholarships except by joining a network like IMRecruitable where you can find out directly what is available from the coaches. 

HOW TO MAKE A BASKETBALL RECRUITING VIDEO

Knowing what to include can be difficult, so we have listed some guidelines to follow when filming your highlight video:

 

  • Only provide game footage

  • Provide approximately 30-40 plays

  • Competition should be good

  • Camera view should not be obstructed by the crowd

  • Should see full mid-court

  • Do not zoom in and out of the player

  • Use a tripod for stability

  • No special effects of any kind

 

Generally, in the video coaches want to see:

  • Shooting capability

  • Scoring capability

  • Footwork and quickness

  • Being able to finish at the rim

  • All around athleticism 

  • Ball handling

  • Blocking shots
