Get Noticed but Get Evaluated!
I work with hundreds of prospective college players a year and the big theme that everyone has is how to get more exposure. Helping kids get placed into colleges for over 10 years, you find it’s not complete rocket science. You can do it yourself with info found online, but you can also change your car engine with info found online. The latter is tedious and probably not worth all the time and effort to really just end up in the same place. Before anyone goes off on the journey to become the next great NCAA player, please start with some self awareness. This can be a tough pill to swallow if you are not getting recruited by LSU as a sophomore and that’s what you feel you deserve. If you are a high school player, there are plenty of ways to go get evaluated to see where you belong in the stack. Mind you underclassmen have a long way to go typically and they will be judged on some basic body type skill and actions. It’s more of a projectability with an underclass guy, but a good exercise nonetheless as you have some time to develop. Upperclassmen need to get an honest evaluation of where you are at and where you have a chance to play. There are lots of opportunities out there for the kids that does want to go play. I’ll touch on this but not dwell on it today, make sure your grades are in check and you have gone to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
Where to get an good evaluation:
Keep in mind to be realistic about your grades and schools you want to attend. Make sure you also are in check about your skills. Getting an eval may show that you are better than you ever thought and now the pedal really needs to get on the gas..
