For high school recruits, consistency is the key

Great piece by ESPN’s Mark Lewis on what college coaches are looking for in recruits: consistent performances (bold is mine):

The word is consistency. Recruiters are constantly looking for it, and finding it these days seems to be a bigger challenge than it ought to be.……

When it comes to basketball skills themselves, consistency reveals a lot about the work an athlete has put into her game. Doing it just once or twice could be a fluke. Doing it consistently is a result of hard work and repetitions.

It’s a new generation, as even Tennessee Coach Pat Summitt found last year with her born-in-the-early-90s freshmen; a lot of kids don’t have the work ethic that previous generations have had, for numerous reasons. So finding players that demonstrate consistency is more important today than ever before.
