Paul’s Answer

Hi Christian,
Let me try and break down some of the numbers for you.

As far as college football. 120 Division 1 schools have scholarships. These schools are limited to 85 scholarships per team. At the FCS level there are 104 schools who have scholarships, and they are limited to 63 scholarship players. There are 111 NCAA Division 2 schools and they are limited to 36 scholarship players. There are 107 NAIA colleges who play football. They are limited to 24 scholarship players.

With Basketball, there are 353 NCAA Division 1 schools. They are limited to 13 scholarship players. At the NCAA Division 2 level, there are 313 schools, with a limit of 10 scholarship players. With the NAIA level there are 93 colleges, with a limit of 11 scholarship players.

As you can see there are a lot of opportunities. I would also review the other college divisions, and see what is available for you. Due to restrictions many Division 1 schools may not be able to provide a full scholarship. So widening your search I think will increase your chances of achieving your goals. There are a lot of successful basketball professionals playing in the United States and Europe, who played in all these college divisions. And players in all these divisions play professionally in the Indoor Football League (IFL), Canadian Football League (CFL) and the NFL.

Paul recommends the following next steps:

Review all the college divisions who offer sports scholarships
See what is available for universities at the NCAA Division 1, 2 and NAIA levels
See if they provide full scholarships for sports
Contact a coach and ask questions regarding their programs
Check academic admissions requirements. Colleges have grade standards you must continue to maintain
