depends how legit your aau team is. some aau teams dont even practice or anything and just go out and play, which is retarded. But if you are on a very good tenured aau team then im sure its worth it. depends on your situation.

If your a top 250 player in the nation, then obviously AAU is gonna be more enjoyable for you.
Better competition, travel, scouts coming to watch you play.


However, for just the novice player like 90% of us are, then HS ball is the way to go.
If your on an AAU team, your team either sucks balls and there is no scouts watching you play, or your stuck on a top team and get no playing time.


If your trying to get recruited though, make sure you get on an AAU team.
If you respect your coach he'll get you on a community college, D3, NAIA team afterwards depending on how good you are

Haha, top 250? Are you serious? Think about how many guys get scholarships every year to division 1 schools alone. As a guy who plays AAU (****, I even have a tournament tonight at Cal-State Dominguez Hills tonight, the Adidas Three Stripes), I can tell you everybody through NAIA is a serious player. I've seen D2 guys thrown down windmills with ease.

More on topic, I love my AAU coach, as he actually knows my game and knows me as a person. True, a lot of "teams" barely qualify as such, but if you 're in a good AAU program it can make a world of difference as far as ability and exposure.

Is it possible to be recruited only through high school?

In the words of lilojmayo:


Yeah i agree 100%. From D3, NAIA, D2, D1 you have to be able to play Community College not necessarily. A lot of club basketball teams from the big D-1 schools like UCLA could beat many CC, D3, NAIA, and bottom feeders D-2 schools.

This isn't the perfect example but A-Rob is playing at Findlay next year. They won the Division 2 National Championship this year. Just how good was Findlay this year. They were undefeated. And in their scrimmage against Xavier they lost by 3 points 79-76. A-Rob at 6'2 throws down windmills easily, an explosive athlete. He could have been a mid major D1 player, but choose to go to a power house D2 school. One to argue that the very best Division 2 schools are better than most mid major Division one programs.

obvious were and still are major flaws in his game he could never really dominate a game at all even though he was top 3 in scoring in his leaguee, was a chucker shot 44% in HS that can't be a good thing, very inconsistent shot, couldn't get his teammates involved, and for how athletic he is should have been average more than 5 rebounds a game.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2irs3s-3E4 3:02 very kobe like play though.
