The Journey from College to Pro

Donation protected

Xposure Basketball USA was founded in 2013 in order to give elite rookies and high level pros an additional opportunity to showcase their skills as they seek jobs all over the world.  Our team works dilgently throughout the year to assist college graduates during their transition to the professional level.  Every year we produce an invite only showcase in the greater Los Angeles area called Xposure LA (XLA).  Our main focus is job placement for players, while keeping costs (entry fee, travel, lodging, food, etc.) as low as possible.  Instead of hosting a 2-3 day camp in Las Vegas with inflated registration fees, we stay local to an area that many of these future stars reside and/or train during the offseason.  Every summer, we are one of the most affordable showcases out there.  Deshawn Stephens (XLA14 & XLA15)

In the last 3 years, we have maintained a success rate of over 50% (XLA participants receiving professional contracts) and have placed 5 players on the LA DFenders.  Most recently, David Nwaba from the XLA 2016 class was the first XLA player to ever to become a Gatorade Call-Up as he earned back-to-back 10-day contracts with the Los Angeles Lakers.  His tenacious defense, athleticism and positive attitude all played a part in David signing a multi-year deal with the Lakers.

As Xposure LA gets ready for year 5, we continue our emphasis on helping graduating seniors such as David earn themselves a fair chance at the pro level.  As many of you know, these NCAA student-athletes are NOT paid while in college.  Between practice, shoot arounds, weights, traveling, games, class, studying, homework, tutors and having a fraction of the average college social life, the daily schedule of a student-athlete does not allow much time for a part-time job like their classmates.  Once you graduate from college, the new gear, the all expenses paid trips, the per diems, the game day meals, they all disappear.  Many of these former student-athletes are now just athletes with a degree with little to no money, hoping for a chance at a career in the competitive world of basketball.
