Congrats to the young man.

But what's the basis for his three-star ranking? Best I can tell, he only has Ivy offers.

That's a fair question. I think the answer was a very strong performance at the Nike Regional Camp in LA in March.

From what I read, he was very focused on the Ivy League the entire time. Last year he had an excellent season as a 1st year starter at St. Bonaventure in Cali. He's transferred to Sierra Canyon for his senior year. Sierra Canyon has sent many kids to the Ivies, including two rising sophomores on the current Penn team.

There are a ton of articles on the internet. Here's one recent one;

Any insight as to why he is transferring? Is it a warning sign of another Michael Collins?

I'll never really understand the Collins transfer although he did explicitly state why. It's not that I think The Ivy League is for everyone, Penn just seemed like a better fit for him on most fronts: 1) academic prestige 2) alumni network 3) playing time opportunity 4) proximity to home. But... whatever. He certainly would have come into the spring as a front runner, but even his opportunity at Penn was no guarantee.

As for Quandt, Sierra Canyon is a private school with a top notch academic reputation. Besides that they have a very strong football program. I think they were 16-0 last year and won the California Div 2 State Championships. This one I do understand.

Not a bad idea these days. Not much demand for my Gate major-History.

until he moved south, it's one of the biggest around. He said they had legions of mainly Chinese and Indian programmers doing algos all day long

Competing to see who can do the most damage to the economy, no doubt.

Holtsie, another demonstration of civic responsibility. Remember, the guys at Lehman, Citigroup, and Bear Stearns paid taxes, but that doesn't excuse what they did.
