Consulting: General Information

Over the past 15 years since leaving college basketball I have counseled hundreds of families from as simply which rec or church league to play in to flying around the country assisting kids with college visits and decisions.  I have facilitated players who literally had zero offers in April of their senior year and then signed with a Division I program.

What I have seen over this time is a system where we have more individuals motivated by money and less driven by facts, credibility and actual results.  The other obstacle is the fact that parents of younger kids do not either get truthful information or are simply ignoring the experience of parents that have gone through the process already and therefore duplicating mistakes and heartache. 

I am simply an old school soul, that has success at every stop throughout my career and am looking to carve out a new niche where there is a need.  This is exactly the same formula when I walked away from UGA in 2004 and started Collegiate Prep.  I don't have a kid in the process, I don't have a hidden agenda, I just have integrity with everything that I do and get results!!!

Below are the basic outlines of the stages in the current process that parents are seeking guidance.  Please use the drop box feature for specifics for the stage that resonates with your situation.

***Just because you went to some tournament or "exposure camp" and received a mass email or even snail mail printed card (even with your name on it) that does not mean that you are being recruited by that school.  It just means you were on the list of a hundred to a thousand others and got the same paraphernalia that everyone else received.  You are not truly being recruited by a school until they are literally sending hand written notes and letters and calling once eligible.  Oh, and just because some dude (usually who never played or coached anywhere) with a "recruiting service" or Twitter account says it does not make it so.
