Ball So Hard is an NCAA Scouting Service which 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 some film with our reports. Ball So Hard went public in 2015. We have also established services within the Greater Houston, Texas area as of  July 2017.

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 the midwest. I have also helped many 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.

Lead Scout

[Greater Houston]

Robert has been a high school basketball scout since 2015. Growing up in the city of Houston, he understood the difficulties that young talent can face while working to achieve their goals. In 2015, he dedicated his energy and efforts to assist the high school basketball players in the community with gaining exposure by using his knowledge and connections to help pair collegiate coaches with the eager talent within the area. Continuing the pursuit of his vision of helping young men attain scholarship opportunities, he began leveraging his strong background in English and, in 2019, introduced the journalistic component to his repertoire. Known today as “Reviews with Rob”, the athletic article series evaluates talent and teams in Greater Houston and surrounding areas. Robert’s passion for the game and love for the city is undeniable, but most importantly, his unwavering dedication to helping young men achieve their dreams is ever present in everything he does for Ball So Hard.
