I'm In High School -- How Can I Go Overseas Without College? dre baldwinQ: I am a 5’8 point gaurd with no offers. I’m a rising senior and I’m wondering how I can play pro basketball without playing in college.
A: In short, you’re a 5’8″ high school player with no college offers — without knowing you, you’re probably not good enough for the pros. Most high school players aren’t, regardless their size or stats or anything else. That’s what college is for: development. My advice is you go to college and play to develop a pro-ready game, if thats still your goal in four years. If you were good enough to go from HS to the pros you wouldn’t need to ask how.
Good luck.
Additional info: If you’re in high school, you would be lucky to make a college basketball roster. You are very far from being a pro. Stop disrespecting the game.

From the Bench To Basketball Pro in 5 Years?

 

Started playing at age 14. Only played one year of varsity basketball - and sat the bench. Walked on in college and played NCAA D3. Then I signed my first professional basketball contract at age 23, starting a 9-year pro basketball journey.
