Recruiting 101

How to Increase Your Exposure to College Coaches 

Are you confident you have the talent to play college basketball but still feel overlooked and under-recruited? 

You may be lacking one of the other key factors it takes to get the exposure you deserve. 

If you have the talent,

all you need is video 

and connections.

Although live events are another great way to get exposure, COVID-19 has drastically affected the ability to host these events. Regardless, you still have more power than you think to get the exposure and connections without attending live events.


Become the best player you can be

Are you considered talented enough to get recruited for college basketball?

If you’re a high school varsity player, regardless of playtime, you have a chance of getting recruited. Although it’s easier for 6’5’’ and up players to get recruited, we’ve had a 5’4’’ basketball player get recruited when no one else on the team was.

Academics are also a factor in getting recruited. GPA’s of 3.5 and over have greater chances of getting recruited.


“The high school coach told me that my son wasn’t good enough to play college basketball and that he should give up. Sam, from Hoop Brothers convinced me that we still had a shot to get my son into college. He was able to generate interest from several schools. When the process was complete my son had 2 full scholarship offers to play college basketball. I am truly blessed to have been able to take advantage of this opportunity and I can’t thank Hoop Brothers enough!” 5’8 Point Guard – NAIA Commit (Name Removed for NCAA Regulations)


Get noticed through a professional highlight video to send to coaches nationwide

When you are reaching out to college coaches you absolutely need to send a video that showcases your talent. 

Video is the most efficient way to showcase your talent to the greatest amount of coaches. With video, there are no geographical limits and you are no longer dependent on physical events. 

Tips for the best highlight video: 

Highlight Video should be a 2-3 minute video that breaks down all of your elite skills. 

Pro Tip: Keep all your best clips at the beginning. College coaches are getting hundreds of videos sent to them and aren’t likely to watch the whole thing. Use the first 30 seconds to convince them to watch the rest. 

Avoid music with profanity. Choose instrumental music instead. -Game tapes

Build real interest from college coaches

There are over 2,000 colleges in the country that you can connect with online. The key is building relationships with coaches online first.

There are thousands of events coaches can attend so most coaches only attend events if they already know a player. That’s why you’ll want to build connections with coaches online first. You can get connected to the coaches by finding their contact info on the school’s website.

“We were pretty hesitant to use a recruiting service but we’re glad that we went forward with Hoop Brothers. The thing that we found the most valuable was that Hoop Brothers team sent out information to college coaches on our behalf. “

“We had been sending emails on our own to coaches and it took us hours to target just a couple schools and we weren’t getting any responses. When Hoop Brothers took over that process for us it took all the stress off our shoulders because we didn’t have to put all the time into it. “

“I liked that they didn’t just mass message every college coach but that they specifically targeted schools for my son. They made the process extremely easy and I’m glad we decided to use this service. ” 5’10 Point Guard – NCAA 3 Committ (Names Removed for NCAA Regulations)
