KB360 RECRUITING – 2018
After hearing 2 major complaints from his clients over the last decade, Keith decided to take action and find a solution. Universally his clients were tired of paying thousands of dollars to recruiting services with no obvious benefits AND they were frustrated that even though their athlete was good enough to play at the next level, could not get any “looks” from even the smallest of colleges.
For the last 24 months Coach Blackmon has been busy designing a recruiting service of the future, for today. KB360 is a COMBINE + PROFILE PAGE + RECRUITING SERVICE + SOUTING SERVICE all connected to give the athlete, the parent, the HS coach and the college coach exactly what they are looking for.

Coach Blackmon saw a need early on and started Houston’s first 7 on 7 organization. Each year KB3 ELITE has produced 10 teams from 8U – 18U that compete on a National level. In 2018, 2019, & 2020 Coach Blackmon has been selected to coach an Adidas National Team that competes all over the country.
