    Wandale's talent was big enough that he got noticed by the big schools.

    For other kids, they may have D-1 talent but are in situations where D-1 exposure is not likely. If they or their parents feel getting them to a place where they can better be noticed helps secure a scholarship and gives them a head start on a bigger future then more power to them.

    Cameron Jones from Frederick Douglass is an example of this. If he stayed at Knott Central I am thinking the best case scenario he would have had would be a preferred walkon spot at a "bigger" school and an opportunity at a OVC school may have been his best "offer" potential with NAIA being the most logical landing spot.

    Even without throwing a pass in a Frederick Douglass game I think just being at a larger school in Lexington legitimized him in the eyes of recruiters and now he is going to Cincy.

    At Knott Central I don't think a Cincy recruiter would ever darken the hallway sadly.
    Kids are punished by the KHSAA who wants a better situation. The rules only protect coaches and schools when it comes to transfers.

    I agree 100% with your statement.
