Ball So Hard is an NCAA Scouting Service that was created in 2012 for Student-Athlete within Central Illinois. It began as a scouting service that offers write-ups and evaluations as a means to help athletes get to the next level. In 2014 we added videography as a means to have film with our reports. We have also established services within the Greater Houston, Texas area as of  2017.  It is our goal to help the Student-Athlete and their family with the process of being recruited. 


All video footage that we obtain will be available for any college coach to see at any level. I will send out the footage personally to coaches who are seeking particular players. I'm not saying that we can't send out your video and information out to every higher learning institute, but let's be diligent in our investigation to find the right schools that will fit you.

I've been studying basketball as a statistician and recruiter since 2005 and coached (AAU) basketball for 6 years. I have built relationships with different Collegiate Coaches and Scouts at all levels in both the southwest and midwest. I have also helped a handful of Student-Athletes go on to play at the NCAA D1-D3, NAIA, and at the NJCAA levels.

I officially went public with Ball So Hard in 2015 and have been helping bridge gaps with prospects and collegiate coaches ever since.

Coaching Experience:

 2x AAU State Champion, 3rd Place at AAU Nationals, Coached on NY2LA Circuit and 15U EYBL.
