College Coaches and NBA Scouts
If you are a coach or scout looking to find more information on the players that you are recruiting, there is no better place to start than HoopsReport.com.
We are on the road everyday scouting camps, tournaments and individual games in search of players that have a future in basketball at the next level(s). Even when you canít be on the road because of Dead Periods or other obligations, we are out there searching for talent. With our reports, you can keep up with the prospects year-round. Simply put, the schools and teams that use our services have an advantage over those that do not.
Our company spends thousands of dollars each year in travel expenses and other overhead keeping up with the nationís top prospects. A huge advantage that we have over our competition is the fact that we film every game that we attend.
Inside our scouting video library, you can find hours upon hours of film from the top events. This gives the scouts and coaches that use HoopsReport.com access to what weíve paid thousands of dollars to obtain. And unlike most of our competition, we donít charge colleges or scouts a nickel more than the average fan for our service.

7 reasons why HoopsReport.com is a must-use service for college coaches and scouts:
Event Reports: Every year our staff attends hundreds of basketball events such as City of Palms, Boo Williams Invitational, Bob Gibbonsí TOC, Kingwood Classic, Nikeís Memorial Day Classic, NBA Players Association Camp, Nike and Reebokís All-American Camps, Nike Peach Jam, the ďBig 3Ē Las Vegas tournaments, and 17U AAU Nationals, among others, and we write reports for each event that includes results and player evaluations. In addition to the written reports, you can watch film from each event inside our video libraries.
Player Information: Our experienced scouts provide accurate player rankings and scouting reports on thousands of players every year. Our player evaluations are the most accurate because of the amount of basketball that we watch. We see more players and see those players more often that any other scouting service in the country and that leads to a high-level of accuracy when we compile our reports and rankings.
Scouting Videos: Hoops Report is the only scouting service available that has full-time videographers on staff. Watch the players you missed during the Dead Periods, save money on travel, and get a better look at the players you are recruiting in our scouting video section.
Sleeper Reports: Hoops Report has become famous for our ability to find under-the-radar prospects that have serious skill and potential. Every year there are an overwhelming number of prospects that have high-major talent that slip through the cracks and land at mid-major schools. In addition, every year there are truly elite talent players that the top tier programs under-recruit. We specialize in helping programs identify those players that are under-recruited. Often times those are the easiest prospects to land and itís always a win-win situation for the school and the athlete.
Recruiting Scoops: Keep up with school lists, commitments, signings, and reclassifications through our daily news services. We have hundreds of connections with high school and AAU coaches in addition to relationships with the players themselves. Did you see or hear about a prospect and want to know who else is recruiting him? HoopsReport.com has the answer.
We Start Young: Many scouting services wonít evaluate players that are younger than sophomores in high school. HoopsReport.com knows that it is a huge advantage to have a foundation to start from and that is why we begin evaluating players in middle school. We attend many of the national camps that invite the nationís top middle-schoolers to participate and we have a tremendous head-start over our competition by the time the players hit high school. With prospects ending their recruitment earlier-and-earlier each year, it is important, if-not necessary, that schools scout the young players. Need a list of the top rising freshmen to look out for this summer? Youíve come to the right place.
The Price! The Scout Pass costs less than $7 dollars a month to get access to the entire database of players, news and video. Not to mention we throw in the College Hoops Preview magazine, a year subscription to Slam Magazine, and the HoopsReport.com DVD-- all for free! In a time when coaches packets alone often cost several hundred dollars, $7 a month is an unbelievable bargain for the best scouting tool you can ask for!
