    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.
