High School Recruiting Goes Public

Original post made by Public Forum, another community, on Dec 28, 2010

High school recruiting goes public.

Private high schools are not the only schools that utilize (undue) influence or "recruit" top athletes to win league, section, and state championships, some extremely competitive public high schools do as well.

The means: guaranteed starting position, playing time, playing up, mvp tournament awards, student/athlete college support, etc.

Monte Vista scores again for the 2010-2011 season.

This time Oakland resident and pro-Oakland business advocate, sells Oakland home and Oakland business prior to EBAL basketball season moving within the gates of Blackhawk. Freshman son is now eligible to attend local high school starting as the school's point guard. One of the top point guard prospects in the bay area, playing previously for the premier North Coast Express Hoopsters basketball team out of Alameda/Oakland to which both parents were board members.

A tremendous addition to the program.
