There were a fair number of tranfers this year (not counting the Libbey situation). The recent Alexander to Whitmer development is interesting. How does that happen without the family moving? Maybe they are.

You're absolutely right about that transfer.Does anyone have any idea how he ended up at Whitmer in the first place?I really think kids switching schools every year was part of the reason Ben Williams just stepped aside and said forget it.TCL basketball is like the wild west with no law enforcement at all.It's also part of the reason the product is so watered down.
