Scanning this list, it looks like almost all players are from prep schools or private schools. Would be interesting to see how the prep/private school vs public school background breaks down on each roster and if there is any correlation to team performance. I know Yale has a pipeline with certain prep schools.

I do this analysis every year. In most years the private school number plus the parochial school number is close to the public school number. Sometimes a bit less, sometimes a bit more. The comparison is misleading because the public school athletes in the Ivy League are from high schools in upscale suburban areas where the public school systems are excellent. The analysis is also somewhat misleading because the
best students among the best athletes from urban areas where the public schools are not as good generally end up in parochial or private schools in their home towns.

I think most of the All Ivy performers from 2019 were from public high schools
