Doing an interview with Coach Barry Hinson is fun, inspiring and informational. Coach Hinson has been a high school and college basketball coach for 40 years. His resume runs from a high school in Tulsa, OK to becoming the head coach at Oral Roberts University, Missouri State University and Southern Illinois University and being on the basketball staff at Kansas University and currently at Oklahoma State University. Barry was at Missouri State University for 9 years and I got to watch him recruit and coach some very fine athletes and coach some very successful teams in Springfield, MO. Hinson's track record coaching on the court and getting recruits to be successful on the court and in the classroom is exceptional. Coach Hinson is very passionate and wears his emotions on his sleeve. As you will find out in this episode, Episode 239, Part 1 of An Interview with Coach Barry Hinson and next week's episode, Episode 240, Part 2, all I had to do was prompt Barry and he covered many, many aspects of recruiting and how to get ready for college.
Listen and find out what Barry has to say about NCAA Rules, how recruiting is a family decision, how to find the right college fit, then we jump to what Coach Hinson watches for when he is watching a game of a recruit. Stay tuned in for Coach's special additional piece of recruiting advise, too.
