exbluetider Posted December 18, 2006 Report Share Posted December 18, 2006 I'd like to get a discussion going re:the recruiting of high school athletes. I read the article in The Observer regarding the basketball team at Queen of Peace. It seems that two young men transfered from St. Anthony's in Jersey City to play for QP. I'm trying to understand why someone would transfer from one of the elite programs in the COUNTRY to a program that, at best, has had mediocre success in a much less competetive environment. I'm sure if the question was posed to the AD at QP , the answer would be "we don't recruit", but you'd be hard-pressed to convince many people of that. It might be time for parents, who are paying to the tune of $5K-$8K a year to educate their children , to ask just that question. Is it any wonder AD's from other schools are upset with this policy. Further, when I was in high school, which is entirely too long ago to matter, a tranferred student had to sit for a year before becoming eligible to participate in athletics. The only caviate to that policy was when transferring from private to public schools, then a student could compete immediately. I'm not pointing fingers, but only trying to get opinions of this practice. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
