College basketball recruiting is a process through which college basketball coaches invite players to compete as players on their respective collegiate teams. Basketball recruiting means that a coach or an assistant has learned about a player and would like to learn more about him or her. The recruiting process may begin with outreach from the coaches and staff beginning after the sophomore year. Coaches and assistants may remain in regular contact with players in which they are particularly interested. They may begin to extend offers during the senior year.
Basketball is my life and the focus of my dreams. Ever since my father introduced me to the sport, I have been passionate about it. When I was four, I received my first Fisher Price basketball court. The court was in my house and the basket was only five feet tall. My parents placed it in the living room since it was the only room in the house without carpet.
For anyone who has ever been passionate about being the best at something, whether it is athletics, music, art, theatre or any number of other endeavors, it is painful to come face to face with someone who is more talented. I have lived this experience in college basketball. During my junior and senior seasons my high school basketball team tallied a record of and made it to the regional championship twice.
Basketball has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. My will to compete is the source of my relentless, driven attitude. I can't imagine life without basketball.
