Most of his input for rankings, recruiting profiles, and evaluations have been behind the scenes but he has become well respected within the community that covers Louisiana basketball.
For Prep Hoops Louisiana, Derek is the lead writer and decision maker on team rankings, prospect rankings, event coverage, and recruiting profiles. He will provide coverage in all areas of Louisiana prep basketball which includes both high school and grassroots basketball.
Finally, Derek has been an assistant coach and head coach at varying levels of basketball in the state. From helping run local middle school programs to assisting at different high school programs across the state, he will bring knowledge of all the talent level in the state from D1 to NAIA and everywhere in between.
