    Plenty of schools wanted him until they realized the baggage that came along with him. As well as entrance exams to many of the private schools were an issue - that is all I will say on that.

    Holy Cross may be a good fit for this young man. There are a lot of benefits to a small school.

    He certainly investigated all of his options. He is not a player that needs the exposure of a big 6A school in order to get attention from college coaches. I wish Kiyaunta and Holy Cross the best!

    HC is definitely a surprise. I have to wonder how much he will improve in the next 4 years. HC is a small school and most kids play both ways. Who will he be going up against in practice, the freshmen team? I just don’t see the development at HC, football wise, being better or equal to what he could get at another school.

    What has me scratching my head is how much “baggage” can a 14 year old boy have?

    If it's anything like football in metro Atlanta it can be tons. Sometimes you have to keep the parents happy with what you're doing to improve their son and sometimes you have their handlers who aren't happy that they aren't being brought in on every little detail. Plus lots more.

    I know that there is a lot of behind the scene activities going on in basketball but I guess I was just kidding myself thinking the same thing wasn’t going on in football. Advising kids in this type of situation is part of parenting. Why parents turn over the development and future of their children to “handlers” is something I will never understand.

    Fascinating thread that is for sure. Sounds like this young man about to be caught up
    In a whirlwind.

    There’s no doubt in my mind the kid has handlers all over him as one would expect. Let’s just hope no matter where the kid ends up he excels and reaches his full potential. He’s a once in a generation talent.

    A couple of the UK coaches I was talking with Saturday said that Alabama was going to offer him. Kid keeps himself clean he will have a good pick of where he wants to go.

    He is now showing on Ballard’s roster on Hudl. Big pick up for Ballard. I wonder if he will be eligible immediately or have to sit out?

    From what I have seen in other situations, he should be eligible. He just says the private school route did not work for him or that he can't afford it and he is good to go. Going from private to public seems like an easy transfer with the KHSAA.

    I agree. It’d be different if he popped up at Trinity, which I really thought would happen. But going from private to public, and a school his middle school fed into, shouldn’t be an issue.
