Event Director: Nick Carroll
As a Co-Founder of Prep Hoops, ex-collegiate player, small college, head varsity, and AAU coach, Nick brings diverse experiences and unique enthusiasm to the Prep Hoops Top 250 Expo.
Throughout his time as both a player and coach, Nick has been fascinated by the recruiting process. As he navigated the process as a small-college recruit, he assumed the pain of getting in front of colleges only existed for the recruit. Once he finished his playing career at Hamline University and went on to coach at the Division III level, he quickly learned that the same pain existed for thousands of collegiate programs across the country. They wanted to get in front of more players, but didn’t have the money or information to do so. Thus, Nick went on to co-found North America’s No, 1 resource for the coverage of prospects at ALL levels of recruitment, Prep Hoops (www.prephoops.com). In the meantime, Nick has facilitated the recruiting process with hundreds of players as a head coach at Adidas-sponsored D1 Minnesota AAU Club and as the head varsity coach at Totino-Grace High School. Additionally, he has led over 80 exposure events for Prep Hoops over the past 4 years.
Nick resides in Plymouth, Minnesota with his wife and 4 sons.
