In reply to: ivy guy 's message, "Prep School recruiting" on 09:47:15 10/01/21 Fri

There were two. Brown and Niland. And two at the U of Chicago. All four were starters on a very strong (albeit not state champ) team. All 4 super kids. Central Texas football is very good; there are a huge number of Power 5 recruits and NFL starters from Central Texas. My observation, however, is that Central Texas is also a "process machine" in that the Pee Wee programs are consistent and run by the same Head Coach as High School---this often serves these programs well when state playoffs come and they face more star laden teams from DFW or East Texas. If I were an IL recruiter and had to pick just one part of Texas to focus upon it would be central as some of the top academic public schools also in this area and there are a bunch of 1AA prospects. West Texas harder sell. Overall, the challenge now with the Texas economy drawing so many of the world's leading companies is that the "40 year vs. 4 year" pitch is not easy and quite honestly an A&M, Longhorn, Baylor, etc. degree on the job trail in Texas on another level than an IL degree. The loyalty is incredible. A joke I am sure fellow Texans on this board will appreciate---Texans (both Native and Honorary, which they deem non-born) do not leave state borders too often---besides trips to Colorado/Wyoming and Destin Florida---we just like being in Texas:)
