Something interesting to note: the players transferring into Birmingham (a public school) are from private schools.
My thoughts are then:
1) I know Birmingham can provide a decent education and the coach is a solid one. However, are these players that solid? One would think that if these players were that good, wouldn't they have received scholarship offers and transferred to a better school, notably a private one (ie Sierra Canyon, Bishop Montgomery, Crespi,Harvard Westlake, etc), that is both better for academics and sports?
2) Or, if these players are that good, does it bring up some questions and skepticism regarding Birmingham being able to lure and gain private school transfers (as well as transfers in the past years from out of state/country, a la Doutrive bros, Christian Koloko, etc.) away from legit private schools?
: : Alemany junior guard Gabe Abbott has transferred to Birmingham
: : Birmingham being aided by several transfers this summer: faith baptist 6-10 forward Benjamin Todd.. sensational soph. David Elliott from st. Genevieve.. Abbott from Alemany.. Aaron Cortes from heritage chr.
: There's been some moves that helped programs & kids. But some that doesn't make sense.
: Birmingham did get better. David Elliot helps. Ben Todd is tall & gives a post prescence with his height. The program upgraded a lot and probably is a good change for both kids to.
: Jonathan Daniels going to Alemany is good for him. Paraclete wasn't a good fit. The kid is a combo & likes to shoot. He'll get to do that at Alemany.
: If Antwan January is eligible for Santa Monica they should be good.
: I might be in a small group to think that Notre Dame SO won't be bad but I do. I think that they have a good coach for that program. They have 2 freshman that can help & will be okish this year.
: Relatively speaking, Providence will be much better this year. Coach Lincoln is doing a good job building a cool team.
: Taft transfers will help them. Golden Valley seems to be a feeder school for Taft. Rumors are that Makani Whiteside might transfer. IMO Alemany would be the move.
: Marvin Adams isn't having an easy time at Village. He shouldn't have went back there so soon after the athletic director made a mess. Marvin's a good guy, is A1, but Village is already poisoning his hoops thinking with some of the moves that he's making & trying to make. I'll live it at that.
