High School Basketball

If you play high school basketball, you may dream of going on to play college ball at legendary schools like Duke, alma mater of Grant Hill, and the University of North Carolina, former home of Michael Jordan. However, dreaming alone will not take you to the collegiate level. You need to be noticed and recognized by college recruiters and coaches for a shot at getting on the team and obtaining an athletic scholarship.

For many high school student-athletes, access to basketball scholarships is crucial if they want to continue their athletic careers at the collegiate level. As of 2012, the average cost of attending Duke University for one year was $56,000. This steep price tag makes just one year of college at Duke impossible for most families-not to mention the other three to four years needed for graduation.

Locate Scholarships for High School Basketball Athletes

Scholarships for high school basketball players are often of the "full ride" variety, because basketball is classified as a "head count" sport. Fortunately, hundreds of Division I and II NCAA colleges offer full ride scholarships to basketball players-a total of 9,285 scholarships for women and 7,177 for men, according to recent data. However, the competition for these scholarships is extremely competitive.
