The Arizona Preps Fall Showcase has taken place for more than a decade within the state of Arizona, and has produced hundreds of student-athletes that have gone on to play college basketball, both male and female. This exciting annual event has brought many opportunities to Arizona student-athletes over the past 13 years, and this year will be no different – in fact, this year could be the best ever as this year’s event will be bringing in some of the biggest and best college scouts in the country.
No other event in Arizona will bring the recruitment opportunities for Arizona’s basketball prospects that this year’s 14th Annual Arizona Preps Fall Showcase will, as some of the best basketball scouts on the West Coast will be present at this year’s event on October 27th at Inspire Courts in Chandler, Arizona.
Arizona Preps is very proud to announce again that Frank Burlison of www.burlisononbasketball.com will be in attendance for this year's event. Burlison will be returning to this year’s Fall Showcase after attending the event last year. Burlison is rated among the premier basketball scouts in America, and has served on the McDonald's All-America committee for many years.
Burlison was a pioneer in the world of recruiting coverage in the pre-Internet era, when the majority of the “major” newspapers’ sports departments looked at basketball and football recruiting coverage as something to scoff at.
In 1978, he was appointed as one of the original members of the McDonald’s All-American Selection Committee.
Burlison often has had the opportunity to write about the exceptional high school players he watched when they moved on to the college and NBA levels. He’s been a credentialed reporter at every Final Four since 1986 and has covered the NBA – and its draft – since the 1980s, most recently chronicling the Clippers and the stunning rookie season of Blake Griffin.
Burlison was inducted into the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Hall of Fame during the 2005 Final Four in St. Louis.
Burlison will be joining many other top-rated basketball scouts at this year’s event, and we will be featuring each of those scouts over the remainder of this month. While many other events claim to bring exposure to Arizona’s student-athletes, the Fall Showcase each year has delivered on this claim.
To be sure that you are not left out you need to register as soon as possible.
