| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

Steve Taylor, a talented 6-7 sophomore, has left Simeon for Mount Carmel. Taylor is a major prospect in football and basketball.

"He has a family member on the coaching staff and his family decided they wanted to make a move," Simeon basketball coach Robert Smith said. "I have no problem with it. If the kid is happy so am I. I wished him and his family well before he left. Steve competed in both football and basketball and was expected to be rated among the top wide receivers in football in the state as well as among the top basketball prospects."

reading column about transfers 02-05-2010 I have a question for mrs kenner principal of whitney young . why kids that transfer to her school dont have to sit out a year. one name marcus jordan did not sit out a year.

There should be a stiff penalty for kids that transfer form school to school. The reasoning for the transfers is strictly basketball purposes. First, off high school coaches should not be allowed to coach AAU and high school basketball. That’s a double because these coaches are looking at the monetary value that comes with a successful AAU program. The importance of money plays effect into these kids decision. Money that the coaches receive in varies ways such as endorsements. Money parents are promise because the major universities pay well for major recruits. The possibilities of obtaining an assistant coach job, there numerous avenues for these coaches. Therefore public leagues coaches need kids that performed at a high level. What sad is that public league coaches don’t teach fundamental basketball. Coaches that doesn’t have degrees nor a basketball IQ, but since there friends of the principle and have a great AAU program there hired as a coach. Here it is this past December; I witness numerous high school coaches at Crane high School recruiting players. That’s illegal and a common practice among high school coaches. The Simeon and the Whitney young’s don’t care about transfer’s there loaded already. Curie has lost players to two different teams, Morgan Park and Foremen both school coaches coach AAU. So figure this one out Mr. Davis kept a blind eye to the corruptions that plague your high school basketball scene.
