re: What do you think about private high school 'all-star' teams like IMG Academy?
Marietta,Ga (7A champs) was essentially a metro Atlanta all star team.

Players were funneled to the school from one of the bigger recruiting services in metro Atl. No accident they had 3 kids in the top 150 and 9 in the Georgia top 100

I believe only 2 kids of the top 9 lived in the district but the school has very loose rules for eligibility since they're their own school district. It's very shady and they've already were busted a couple of years ago.

Hope the GHSA puts a stop to what their doing.Its starting to look like what's GA HS basketball.

IMG games are meaningless

yeah in regards to the state playoff picture without a power rating system, but if you’re playing IMG, you generally want to beat them

Edna Karr is basically a NOLA all star team. All of the public schools in the city are run by charter operators, and there are no more attendance zones; rather, kids apply to their top choices on the “OneApp” and are assigned to schools based on certain criteria (one of which is where they live). All of the top football players somehow end up at Karr

Yet they are still in the public classification and not a select school! The principals in this state are a joke.

They are trying to build on in Alabama
USA Academy

They had Probst on to be Head Football coach but it seems that fell through.
