Today’s guest is Skyler Beauchamp, Technical Recruiter & Basketball Consultant.
As you know this season of the podcast is geared towards bringing the listeners not just knowledge for on the court… but knowledge that will add value to your life off the court.
Lucky for us, today we get the best of both worlds! Skyler was acclimated to the scouting world the moment he stepped into college. Managing his college team and getting involved with USA basketball during his freshman year led him to start his own scouting service. He spent the past 5 years evaluating talent and helping professional teams identify good fits for the roster.
Today we talked about:
how he grew up and got introduced to the game
being exposed to a high level of hoops during college
balancing school work and starting a scouting service
what he looks for when evaluating
what technical recruiting is and how he got the job
the parallels between the corporate world & hoops
and much more
Sky also drops some knowledge on exactly what teams look for when selecting imports for their overseas rosters!
