As in the world of college football, traditional basketball scholarships at the
most competitive universities require a great deal of talent in the sport and the
ability to catch the attention of college recruiters. Much of the funding is controlled
by the NCAA, which means there is a great amount of emphasis placed on not only
talent but academic records, as those awarded scholarships must meet certain GPA
For those looking for full or partial rides at the top basketball programs, players
should know they need to be on the lookout for recruiters who are looking for a
team that will win them championships and bring in alumni dollars. Those who want
a smaller school or who may not have the skills on the court that would catch a
recruiter’s eye have more options. Private organizations and local groups often
place less emphasis on talent than financial need, extracurricular activities and
academic records. Players then at all skill levels may find themselves eligible
for awards not offered directly by the college they plan to attend.
