What can I do to play professional basketball after college?

I'm currently a senior in High school that really wants to know what steps I can accomplish to achieve my true goals of playing basketball at the professional level. I plan on playing basketball in college but freshmen don't get as much recognition. I would appreciate some advice on my dream goals. Thank you #basketball #professional-sports

Continue with your plan to play as a freshmen and build your skills, master your game through the years and the recognition will come. Get involved in AAU Summer Legeau basketball to get gain additional exposure.

Without knowing your skill level and presuming that you truly love Basketball continue to do 3 things -practice, play and watch the game. Practice what? Ballhandling , dribbling and passing and more ballhandling . Every position on the court has to know how to dribble and dribble well- even if you a big man / post player. Don't know specific drills, get back to me and I will gladly upload a document to use as a guide - amazing basics that will take you places if you practice them correct and regularly.15-20 minutes a day.
Play, play, play- 1 vs 1, 3 vs 3 and some 5 vs.5 if you can.
Watch the game on tv and at playgrounds- especially the college level , not the Pro level so much. Don't know whAt to look for exactly when you watch in order to learn?? That's cool , no worries. Tell me what your position is and I'll give you a lens to look through and I'll give you general information to look at too !! Watching is a great visual tool if one knows what they are looking for in terms of skills, strategy , positioning ...
Looking forward to your feedback .
