NSR - any experience?
My 15-year-old son has been approach to sign with NSR (National Scouting Report) Australia. They are offering to "guarantee" him a college spot in return for a fee of $5K.
The fine print is that, while a spot of some sort might be guaranteed, there is nothing to say it won't be a full-fee-paying spot at a Junior College in Div 4. There is definitely no guarantee of a scholarship, nor of the quality of the school (academically or the basketball program).
On the other hand, they do have some decent testimonials and have affiliated themselves with a number of Basketball associations.
My gut feeling is that this is somewhat of a rip-off. If my son is good enough to get to College, then they will find him without us having to go looking (via Scouts at Nationals, NITP program, etc).
Does anyone have any experience with NSR? Do they actually provide value for the $5K fee? Would you recommend them?
Thanks - any advice gratefully received.
