HOW COLLEGE BASKETBALL RECRUITING WORKS [WEBINAR]

How College Basketball Recruiting Works Webinar
 

College Basketball Recruiting Webinar

We’ve written a lot about how college basketball recruiting works because it is one of the most confusing and frustrating topics for players and parents.

For this reason, we’ve written blog topics ranging from what college coaches look for in recruits to the truth about playing D1, D2, and D3 basketball to an interview with Paul Biancardi to a guide to college basketball recruiting and many other college basketball recruiting topics.

With all of the college recruiting information in separate blog posts, I wanted to put it ALL together and literally talk about it, so I put all of that content in a webinar on March 29th at 7pm, titled “How College Basketball Recruiting Works”.

Although that date is passed, the webinar is still available for viewing on our website here.

Among the topics covered in the webinar include:

  • NCAA rules and terminology
  • NCAA academic standards
  • NCAA 2017 basketball recruiting calendar
  • Differences between D1, D2 and D3
  • What college coaches look for in players
  • What college coaches look for in parents
  • Differences between showcase camps and elite camps
  • What are scouting services and are they worth it?
  • And much more…

If you’d like to get all of this information and more, please check out the video recording of our “How College Basketball Recruiting Works” webinar. It’s an hour and fifteen minutes long and jam packed with important information on the college basketball recruiting process.

HOW TO EMAIL COLLEGE BASKETBALL COACHES FOR RECRUITING

5 Tips To Get Your Email Noticed by College Basketball Coaches

Last year, I wrote a blog post about how to play basketball in college, and it included 10 important steps. The final step, which at this point the player is a LEGITIMATE college basketball prospect, is to email college basketball coaches.

Emailing college basketball coaches is a proactive step to let them know as a player you are interested in their basketball program, and hopefully, create some interest from the college coach in recruiting you.

So, what I’d like to do is explain the process of emailing college basketball coaches starting with creating a list of possible schools, how to find a college coach’s email addresses, what to include in the email, and finishing with how to send the emails.

JAY BILAS SKILLS CAMP: 10 REASONS WHY PROSPECTS SHOULD ATTEND

Before I get started, I want to disclose that I’m the Director of Recruitment and a Coach at the Charlotte Jay Bilas Skills Camp. However, that’s ONLY because I truly believe in the camp and the benefits it offers to high school players as college basketball prospects.

If I didn’t believe in the camp, I wouldn’t have anything to do with it.

In my opinion, as a former college basketball player and pro player and current youth basketball coach, it’s the BEST basketball camp around for SERIOUS high school players who want to play at the NEXT LEVEL.

More specifically, there are 10 reasons why college basketball prospects should attend the Jay Bilas Skills Camp in either Charlotte or Oklahoma City.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PLAYING DIVISION 1 COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Do you think you have what it takes to play Division 1 College Basketball?

Growing up, I remember turning on ESPN and tuning into Duke v. North Carolina or Kentucky v. Louisville or UConn v. Syracuse or UCLA v. Arizona and thinking, “now, that’s what I want to do and where I want to be.”

And I’m sure this is the same experience that many kids around the nation are still having today as well. They see the bright lights, masses of fans, sweet uniforms and shoes, all the publicity, and everything else that goes along with big time D1 college basketball, and think they want that.

However, the truth is, 99.99% of players will not reach this level, and even if they do, it’s not all bright lights and amazingness as seen on TV. No matter what level of D1 college basketball, whether low-major, mid-major, or high-major, there are certain truths that many players and parents typically don’t know.

I was lucky enough to have played D1 at Davidson College from 2002-06 (pre-Steph Curry FYI), and although I felt prepared to play there, if I had known the real truth about playing D1 college basketball, I would have been even better prepared.

With that said, recently, we’ve written about the truth about playing D2 and D3 college basketball, so now it’s time to write about the TRUTH about playing D1 college basketball.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DIVISION 2 COLLEGE BASKETBALL

playing division 2 men's college basketballA few months back, my PSB Co-founder, Logan Kosmalski, wrote a blog titled, “The Truth About D3 Basketball“, which was really eye-opening for parents and players, so now I’d like to attempt to do the same thing with D2 college basketball.

There are so many incorrect assumptions and uninformed opinions out there that need to be corrected so that parents and players can make better decisions when choosing a college or university at which to play basketball, especially if Division 2 schools are an option.

As I’ve said before in past blogs, I hear and see kids and parents turn their noses up all the time at anything that’s not D1. And that’s a shame because:

A) D2 and D3 have a lot of great things to offer.

B) Often times those kids aren’t necessarily even good enough to play at the D2 or D3 level.

The problem is they just don’t know the truth about Division 2 basketball, so in this article I’ve listed 5 things that parents and players MUST know about D2 college basketball.
