This sounds akin to hockey players leaving school to play junior hockey. Hope things work out well for him.

A trend has developed - first swap club teams and now high schools. Athletically motivated transfers are a hot topic nationwide. The value of finishing what you start and loyalty is no longer part of our value system. Displacing another starter at a school doesn't matter.

Quinton Hooker stayed home at Park Center and had a wonderful senior season. I really hate this attitude some of these kids pull regarding playing for a better school. Whatever happened to staying with the team you grew up with?

It's America so I guess kids have free choice. But, I don't agree with dad--good things can be acheived at Cooper and in the NS Conference. But, good luck...be careful what you wish for...you may get it.

Pretty sure based on the interest and offers Rashad has gotten playing at Cooper HS and in the state of Minnesota, this switch in beliefs will only make coaches think twice about his attitude towards his game, and choosing his own career over loyalty to the team. http://espn.go.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/player/_/id/124618/rashad-vaughn

I suspect that if a gifted cellist left the symphony orchestra at Edina High School (just to pick a random school) to study at Julliard as a high school senior, people would be falling all over themselves to congratulate the seizing of such an opportunity.

It was great when Centennial won the state hockey tourney about 10 years ago. The thing that is so great the team was comprised of local guys that played together forever. That may be the last time we see something like this.

Reality check will be when he finds out he isn't good enough to get into one of the top basketball-prep schools - and if they take him, he will still play enough to put up numbers.
