Pro Skills Basketball of Charlotte has helped over 20 players go on to play college basketball in only 3 years! Specifically, through our competitive grassroots basketball club, PSB Select, we’ve been able to teach and coach players while also helping them get the exposure they need to be recruited to play college basketball. The list is not even finished as some players in the class of 2016 have not committed or signed yet, but the list includes 15 Division I college basketball players!
Jillian Villanti, Lake Norman Charter, 7th Grade
Jillian Villanti has been playing AAU basketball with PSB Select for 3 years. She is a starter for her Lake Norman Charter Middle School team as a 7th grader, and she is one of the leaders of this season’s PSB select team. Of Jillian, our Director of Girls Basketball, Courtney Willis, says, “Jillian is an extremely hard worker and great teammate. She’s always willing to dive on the floor and encourage her teammates.” Congrats Jillian!

There is little doubt that a well planned basketball highlight video is an important part of the college basketball recruiting process. A good basketball highlight video can gain you the attention that you seek, and a bad highlight video can have you thrown into a pile, never to be acknowledged again.
It sounds harsh, but that is the world that college basketball coaches live in. Having friends, family and acquaintances in that line of work, I have seen it first hand. Here are 5 tips on how to make the best basketball highlight video.
A few weeks back, my Pro Skills Basketball co-founder, Brendan Winters, and I had the opportunity to be guest on the nationally-renowned, Hardwood Hustle Basketball Podcast with Adam Bradley and Alan Stein. It was a great experience as I was able to talk about my basketball background and career as well as my role in Pro Skills Basketball today. You can listen to the podcast on the Hardwood Hustle website or download it on Apple iTunes, or you can read the interview below. Also, if you missed Brendan’s episode, you can check it out here.
