Your comparing SFA to Dematha here. Not SFA and Yulee. Dematha always plays elite competition, even if they don't bend over backwards to work with your outfit.

Compare both 2020 schedules when they come out. SFA has more football-related features and benefits at this time.

Or maybe he's another one who was asked to leave a WCAC school for disciplinary reasons...they already have a kid from DeMatha who was charged with sexual assault and a kid from SJC who was asked to leave for drug issues.

 

Maybe. Similar to when DM recently accepted the SJC QB xfer.

Similar...but he went to public school in between.

You'd have to go full blown Trumpster and lie up a storm to actually try to justify this claim.

Dematha and SJC are real schools with standards and legitimate procedures for accountability. SFA and the still fictitious USAA are just trying to load up on "ballers" by any means necessary.

Helps SFA’s image to have players like this.

Wilson.  And he has an offer from an Ivy League school.

Playing elite competition from the top three hsfb states in America is a huge selling point. It’s all about marketing. 

These are teenagers, mostly not yet old enough to vote. It's not all about marketing. It shouldn't be all about middle-aged creeps making a buck or getting their mugs on ESPN.

I’d think the parents are making the ultimate decision.

Actually DeMatha has been on ESPN a number of times.  (With SJB this past year!) Bill McGregor has also sent more than 200 players to college on scholarship. 

And there is an Ohio State defensive end who will probably be drafted #2 in the upcoming draft.  From DeMatha.  Which he transferred INTO as a rising jr from Laurel’s Palotti.

There is nothing that Biff Poggi can do for any athlete that DeMatha didn’t do for Chase Young.

In which case it wouldn't really be all about marketing, as you claimed.

Many of these kids' parents are not particularly informed (or even involved), which is a shame. 

I concede that there is a "flavor of the month" element to this crap. There are plenty of cases of transfers where there is no reason to believe the kid is making an upgrade or joining a superior program. A lot of the movement may be a result of nothing more than the whims of cliques of teenagers.

Awesome! But most elite players desire to play at the highest levels. 

DeMatha.  In the 38 years of USA Today’s final 25 polls only DLS was ranked in the top 25 more times.

Who’s been ranked higher the last three seasons? Get with the moment!

I must add that SFA is going to be playing a lot of OOS and Canadian teams next year.  The Baltimore private’s won’t play them.  Now this.

It’s very evident that they don’t need to play the local, pouty privates.

Actually, it equals deception, or a lie. To be fair, deception as a means to get a desired end IS increasingly popular in these times.

There is a lot to be said for the next three.  Unless DM loses their freshman qb they should be one of the top programs in America.

I wonder if Bill McGregor has pulled a player or two from SFA?

While at SFA, Bill had a rule. If you play us, we won’t accept your players. Even if they recruit themselves. I’d say turnabout is fair play at this point. Ignoring or shutting out teams like IMG, USA and SFA makes it easier for them to pillage. Long term, to stop them you must beat them. 
 

Gentle reminder. Chase Young transferred to DM from Palotti. 
 

Regarding academics, SFA currently has players on the rosters of Duke, Army and Georgetown just to name a few.

PS....Bill tried to recruit Barham to SFA in the 8th grade.

We live in America, the Land of the Free. The kid and his guardians want a change of scenery. Who are we to question their decision? #sourgrapes
