Instant on-court recruiting turnoffs

When college coaches attend high school or AAU games to evaluate players as a fit in their program, they don’t just look at talent and skill. They are also extremely conscious of on-court red flags that could cause them to end the recruitment and move on to the next player on their list.

As we head into the heart of AAU season this spring and summer, here are a few instant on-court recruiting turnoffs coaches and scouts often look for. The fact is, this list could be endless, but these are a few behaviors that I observe most. And I know from being a former college coach these don’t sit well when deciding whether or not to extend or pull a scholarship offer.
