Behind Va. Tech Recruit's Decision to Transfer
Colleague Matt Stanmyre has a terrific read this morning on Paul VI guard Erick Green and his decision to transfer for this season from Millbrook to the Fairfax private school in an attempt to better prepare for college. It's a two-way street: Green hopes to get more rigorous practice and playing opportunities and Paul VI gets a top player who can circumvent the WCAC's restrictive transfer rules because he comes from more than one county removed from the league's geographical footprint.
This raises a very debatable point: Is it better for players to transfer to private schools in such situations? Or should they remain at their public schools? Green, an All-Met last season, already had earned a scholarship from Virginia Tech.
One thing to note: Courtland star junior Josh Hairston, who this fall committed to Duke, also was wooed by many private schools before opting to remain at his school outside Fredericksburg.
