TO do it properly is around $1,800. You need someone to come in and record it properly. A highlight tape can get a scholarship worth vastly more so $1,800 is a small investment. To cut from existing tape to a high, professional standard is around 500-700.

What do you want a highlight video for. Colleges don't want them.

You can easily make one yourself for no cost. Colleges prefer game tape if that's what you’re after.

Absolutely, the first step in getting "recruited" by US Colleges is having some highlight tape available. The better you can present your skillset, strengths and game in as brief as time as possible the better. College coaches get sent several hundred emails and communications which includes tape per day. So they simply don't have time to check full game tape each and every time. They want to efficiently, quickly and accurately as possible evaluate you before putting you into their recruiting depth charts.

Even getting college coaches to open your email with your highlight tape in it is a big ask. But in short, having a good highlight tape is very important part to getting yourself recruited by as many schools as possible in order to determine your level.

Lots of things aren't that hard if you want something that vaguely meets the description without any concern for quality.

The pricey bit is getting someone to get footage with decent camera gear over multiple games/training sessions etc. The editing is pretty straightforward and can be done by anyone with basic computer skills.

I remember a mum hired a professional video guy for around 6 games for 16 div 2 saying it would attract college coaches. Pity that the kid was terrible, scored maybe 2 baskets and couldn't stop a sneeze. Video guy asked me the best place to aim on court for his setup, I said the bench was pretty easy to find.

Go to Fiverr or similar for someone cheap. For DIY, DaVinci Resolve has a free tier that is very good and certainly better than you'd need for this task.

But first, I’d go to the established genuine coaches and ask them what they recommend for pitching to colleges or whoever you’re trying to attract.

Am looking at doing same thing, thought it was just getting game footage and putting together, but doing proper research there are great channels on YouTube. To get a professional look depends on camera and actually putting a script together in terms of getting sequences right. Lots of free editing software out there, missing features from paid version but don't have watermarks or anything.
And if you expected not to get smartarse comments on this forum you've obviously never been on here or not for long.

Wow! I shouldn't be surproized I suppose but a hell of a lot of people on here who clearly have no idea or experience giving advice.
