About Us

Before Hoop Brothers became a national recruiting service with the NCAA it was founded with one simple yet powerful belief. The belief that no matter who you are, where you come from and what odds are stacked against you, you have the power to create opportunity doing something that you love. This philosophy led Hoop Brothers founder Sam Tarell to create a platform that helped his younger brother fulfill a lifetime dream of earning a scholarship to play college basketball. Years later Hoop Brothers has now helped over three thousand players with the recruiting process by providing quality recruiting videos, building online profiles and establishing strong relationships with college basketball coaches across the country.

Hoop Brothers is now a one stop shop for college basketball recruiting. With an expanding network of local scouts to create rankings and articles, dynamic exposure events, premium highlight videos, and representatives calling and emailing college coaches on a daily basis for our clients, Hoop Brothers has it all. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from and what odds are stacked against, you have the power to create opportunity doing something that you love and we have the power to help.

Sam refuses to accept the status quo and is constantly pushing the boundaries of what he and his team are able to accomplish. In his youth Sam’s family struggled to find a stable living situation and he moved nearly 15 times before graduating high school. The basketball court became his home. The game became his sanctuary.
