Basketball Recruiting


RE: Basketball Recruiting

Prince Williams-ECU, Emanuel "Poobie" Chapman all time assist record at NCCU, Dez Wells-Maryland, Bishop Daniels-Rutgers, Rodney Purvis-UCONN, Josh Newkirk-Pitt, Josh Davis-San Diego State. All of these kids are from Raleigh. Who will be the next to live their NBA dream?

RE: Basketball Recruiting

People around here can care less about the homegrown kids unless they play for UNC/Duke!!! Remember when John Wall made the allstar team and won the dunk contest people cared less. But if Harrison Barnes had won it the keyboards would have been on fire!!

Antonio Stabler-Wakefield-Queens University-Pro Ball in Germany.

This is in response to Silkyblue. Cynicism becomes ignorance when trying to make a point without all the facts. The names stated were of recent years so people could be familiar and relate. You, in your ingenious way extrapolated out the .03 brilliantly but you only used the sample size. We actually have over 200 (231 to be exact) documented athletes that received D1 or D2 scholarships. I KNOW our average is 9.625 scholarships athletes per year. In our 2013 class, we had 9 out of 9 receive scholarships. There isn't an organization in NC and very few in the country that can say that. We do what we do for the kids and their families and respect all others that do it the right way. We love you in spite of! #OurTruth

RE: Basketball Recruiting

GROAD doesn't need to explain a thing on this board the program speaks for itself. My kids were a part of this organization and I saw first hand the opportunities that this program brings to the table. High school staffs don't or won't take the time this program does when it comes to recruiting. That's the biggest beef that no one will talk about in which GROAD spends a lot of time whether by phone, tournament, or just giving recruiters accurate insight into these kids. West, West, Chris, Theo, Coleman to name a few have helped kids get recruited for years and have a who's who of coaches in their phones that they can call anytime to speak about their kids unlike high school coaches who are in class during the day when most recruiters need info. For example why would a recruiter walk into a school when the so called coach doesn't have transcripts, know what class the kid is in, or just be able to give accurate info at the drop of a hat, not to say AAU coaches have complete access to this info but it's just easier to come to tourney and talk to mom, dad, coach, and athlete at the same time. Respect to all coaches who assist in the recruitment of their athletes but to come on here like boo GROAD man please!

RE: Basketball Recruiting

I just wanna know who's recruiting TJ Evans of Apex? The lefty has had a great 4 years at Apex and only Apex. A lot of kids elect to transfer nowadays.... He's remained loyal and has seen his game progress over the years.

RE: Basketball Recruiting

As a former coach I know for a fact that college coaches do come to high schools and its recruiters that make suggestions or offer leads to college programs, so there is no need for them to visit schools at the end of the day its the college head coach that makes the decision on scholarships. Also colleges can't officially offer until they have received a transcript from the high school(chances are they won't offer someone that can't get accepted to their school). The one thing about high school ball is that it's the place colleges coaches must go to find out about a kids official academic records and if someone requests a transcript do you think the principals or guidance counselors or secretaries aren't going to share that info with the high school coaches? aau showcases talent, high school ball showcases talent that has met academic requirements. I personally can count on one hand the amount of players that have made it to any level playing just aau and no high school ball, but I know and have heard of a lot more that did it just playing high school... Are there bad high school coaches yes are there bad aau coaches yes, it hurts kids when everyone tries to validate which is best when in this day and age I think both play a part, because it can be misleading and alter the reality of the situation... not trying to bash aau coaches or praise high school coaches, but people need to be more respectful of the all the avenues a kid can take to achieve goals.

RE: Basketball Recruiting

Any kid that wants to play a D1 or D2 sport has to be cleared with the NCAA Eligibility Center. This must happen before a recruit can even go on an official visit to the school much less receive an offer. Therefore any D1 or D2 school has access to transcripts, SAT & ACT scores very early in the recruiting process. They do not need to get these transcripts from the HS coach (not unless the player has not been cleared through the NCAA). I'm not saying that high school ball isn't important because I think all avenues can be a potential opportunity for a child gaining exposure. I believe any student athlete that wants to play at the next level should get as much experience as possible not only for the exposure but to improve their skills.

RE: Basketball Recruiting

Me too. Where is TJ Evans going?

RE: Basketball Recruiting

I would not be surprised if some D1 offers come his way real soon.
@CoachK2
Well deserved his game has progressed. It was nice to see Neal give him props during the post game interview when focus was on Boyd and Evans. Class act.
