My father always preaches “ball and books, books and ball” because he says that, if playing basketball at the highest level is what I want to focus on, then sticking to these two tasks and giving it my all will ultimately reward me in the long run.

I am a 6’5 guard that can handle the ball well and distribute to teammates. I am also a knock-down shooter so it allows for me to play off-ball as well and spread out the defense. My size also allows me to be really effective on the defensive end and I like to take advantage of an unset defense in transition.

I want to play in college basketball because I love the grind that comes with it and I will be surrounded by teammates and coaches that love being in the same environment. Also, this opportunity would allow me to further my education and learn valuable skills to help me in my future.

How To Handle Objections

How To Handle Objections

How To Handle Objections

Your ego is crushed, your pride is destroyed, the parent told you over and over again they’re not interested or maybe they said no thank you. 

It could be something as simple as “Don’t call us, we’ll call you if we’re interested.” Whatever they’re saying, it’s an objection.

The easiest thing for a parent to do to you is to try and make you go away, but you cannot accept that approach.

Handling objections is about developing a strategy, sharpening your skills.

You’re trying to change the parent’s mind to your way of thinking.

You’re in business to sign them up. You want victories not losses or you will be out of business very soon.

Success Is Measured In The Follow-Up Phone Call

Success Is Measured In The Follow-Up Phone Call

Success Is Measured In The Follow-Up Phone Call

You’re always going to be a rockstar on your first encounter with a parent of a student-athlete.

The real trouble arises when you have to make the follow-up phone call. 

You begin to sink into darkness. 

You’re nervous with the possibilities of failure and anxiety is crushing you. 

You’re overcome by fear and you may forgo the follow-up phone call all together.

You have to muster up enough courage to follow through with the follow-up phone call. If you fail, you will fall flat on your face as a college scout.

The seriousness of the follow-up phone call cannot be understated. You must have a strategy and you must have a plan for every phone call you’re going to make.

The Puzzle Of Recruiting: Not Knowing How The Pieces Fit

The Puzzle Of Recruiting: Not Knowing How The Pieces Fit

The Puzzle Of Recruiting: Not Knowing How The Pieces Fit

On all levels the college recruiting process sucks. It sucks in the amount of time it requires to make all the pieces fit. It sucks because parents are spending thousands of dollars each and every year for exposure. 

The process sucks because hardworking student-athletes are doing everything in their power to be the best that they can be, yet and still many of them are overlooked by college coaches.

Believe me when I tell you, the recruiting process is a puzzle and most do not know how all the pieces fit.

There are too many pieces and very little time to make heads or tails of the recruiting process and many who try their best to make those pieces fit fail.

More African-Americans Are Playing Quarterbacks

More African-Americans Are Playing Quarterbacks

More African-Americans Are Playing Quarterbacks

More African-Americans are playing at quarterback and it’s not my imagination. 

40 years ago, if not longer, African-American football athletes were discouraged from playing quarterback. 

Their coaches changed their position and talked them out of being a quarterback.

African-American student-athletes were told that they weren’t smart enough to read defenses and that they couldn’t throw the football accurately.

It was all types of problems that were conjured up by these coaches to manipulate African-Americans into playing other positions when they really wanted to play quarterback.

Times have changed. The game has changed.

African-Americans are dominating at the quarterback position.
