Do you know what a basketball position planning board (PPB) is? How important it is?
If you don't read and understand this page your basketball scholarship chances stand a good chance of going down the tube. This is one of the top reasons for our 98% success rate (as of Jan 2017).
Every basketball coach has a position planning board (PPB) and we will help you understand why it is so important to you. We will use basketball for our sample.
Since basketball coaches have a limit number of basketball scholarships and a lot of prospective basketball recruits they must keep track of how many will be available to give out year by year as noted in the first table below. i.e. We know that next year (juniors now) we need to fill 14 spots.
Here are some facts;
1) A basketball coach will never make this public nor tell you where you stand on his PPB or even if you get bumped off. However, the basketball coach may try to get you as a walk on. Why not, free players.
2) You must try to get on as many basketball PPB's as possible. Why? Just because a basketball coach contacts you doesn't mean you will get a basketball scholarship. Just because you get invited to a basketball camp doesn't mean you will get a basketball scholarship.
Wake up!!! I have talked to countless number of parents and athletes that thought they were going to get recruited for a basketball scholarship and didn't. Why? They thought it was for sure and quit trying to reach out to other schools. Great tactics for the basketball college coach. They succeeded from isolating you just in case they was to pick you up and keeping you from their competition.
Question, would you rather be like the person above or like Mike Oher in the movie "Blind Side" where you have several coaches trying to win you over? I know, we all would like to Mike's position. So ask yourself, Do I want to gamble on the chance of my lifetime and only get in front of a few basketball college coaches or hundred to thousands?
The new plan. get on as many PPB's as possible to increase your basketball odds since you will never get a basketball scholarship from someone who doesn't know you exist.
How, unlike other recruiting services trying to push you to schools that already have positions filled then it is huge waste of your money and time. eScout4u will get you noticed by more basketball college coaches than any other recruiting service and prove it where others can't.
Remember, if you can’t make it on a coaches position planning board (PPB read more click here) then what you end up with is “a basketball look”, nothing more.

Think like a basketball college coach™ topic! What would you do?
If you were a basketball coach you would look at every athlete that approached you by any means. You would pick and choose but you look because you never know who the next greatest is. Plus your job security requires you to be a winning basketball coach.
Athletes, cover all your bases, athletically and academically. Parents, you can be a big help now.
