ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND BASKETBALL GOES TOGETHER
Total points scored this season
1. Gain as much exposure as you can
You never know what coaches will be interested in recruiting you and what scholarships are out there for you
2. Don't be afraid to contact college coaches
Be sure to ask questions and show the coach that you are really interested in their school and the sports program. No coach will respond to a message that only says "Hi Coach, you should check me out".
3. Work on your fundamentals, but also work on your grades
Bad grades will limit the number of schools that will accept you academically, so it is very important to keep your grades up. Don't limit your athletic recruiting options and miss out on a great school because you didn't work hard in the classroom.
