The pressure on you is so hard to handle
Time is slipping like a burning candle.
Knowing you have to be great in every game
If you do badly, you are the only one to blame.
Getting recruited by some of the best schools
You better make sure you follow all of the recruiting rules.
You are extremely stressed about making yourself seem better
Bet you can’t wait to get that recruiting letter.
Some do it for their future, others to get out of the hood
But all of them played the best they could.
Some are good enough but still need one thing to be
And that one thing is to pass the SAT.
Yes this process is exceptionally hard
But the players know it will be worth it when they see their face, on a pro basketball card.
