    That's assuming he's going to actually pay cash money. I've heard they have a tuition assistance fund? I have no idea how it's decided who or how much money that fund can benefit.

    Tuition assistants has been a program at NewCath forever. Its a great thing for families who do not have the means to pay for the private catholic education. It isnt for athletics it is open for anyone in need. There is also a work program as in cleaning and scrubbing the school to make money for tuition

    My question is will he be eligible? I know Hopkinsville has a 6' 10" kid who had to sit out a full year before he was eligible because he was coming from out of country, hence why he didn't play this year.

    Apologies up front if I seem to be stereotyping or just plain griping, but isn't this type of story the reason some of us feel that private high schools have a built-in edge over the publics?

    I don't understand your reasoning? This (or any player for that matter) can choose to attend any school they like in KY.

    There is a reason why Cov Cath didn't take this guy! I don't think it is smart on New Cath part!

    Both CovCath and NewCath are in the same school system. If one school in the Diocese can't admit him for a reason then that goes for all the schools.
