“I’ve known Frank Burlison for nearly 30 years and have been constantly impressed with his ability to evaluate players. He has always been an amazing source of insight and knowledge. Frank has studied and analyzed players, coaches and situations from the grassroots level to the highest tiers of NBA basketball. His best asset, however, is his ability to convey that information in an organized and clear fashion. Frank is highly respected and appreciated by many in the basketball community.”
Gar Forman, General Manager of the Chicago Bulls and the NBA’s 2011 Co-Executive of the Year

“Frank Burlison is one of the most respected talent evaluators in the country. He was the first to identify me as a blue-chip prospect early in my ninth-grade year. Every coach, player and writer on the west coast looks to Frank for his opinions on players. He rarely makes a mistake. I am glad he was right about me!”
James Harden of the Houston Rockets, a McDonald’s All-America at Lakewood (CA) Artesia High in 2007 and the Pacific-10 Player of the Year as an Arizona State sophomore in 2009

“I’ve known Frank for at least 35 years and have the utmost respect for his writing as well as his understanding of, and insight into, basketball. His ability to evaluate basketball prospects is almost impeccable. Most coaches and scouts watch a player and can tell you how good he is NOW. What separates Frank from the others is that he can watch the same player and tell you how good he can be two or three years down the line.”
George Raveling, the coach for 21 years at Washington State, Iowa and USC and currently the Director of International Basketball for Nike
NAIA and Community Colleges
A minimum of 12 reports (fall to summer) per year, with more emphasis and detail on “low-major” to “non-major” (Div. I) prospects, and players likely to end up at prep schools or community colleges. $300
“I was always impressed with Frank’s great feel for basketball – he sees the game like a coach does. His ability to evaluate players and their potential is excellent. I’ve said it many times – Frank is probably the best talent evaluator I’ve seen in the business.”
Jerry Tarkanian, whose 31 Long Beach State, UNLV and Fresno State won 784 games. Four UNLV teams played in four Final Fours, with the Rebels beating Duke in the 1990 NCAA championship game
