Reply to "What's the benefits/risks with keeping a player back a school year?"

In today’s LA Times, there is an article about the California state hs basketball championships “Freshman leads View Park Prep”. I thought about this thread when later in the article, “Johnson, 16, scored 18 of his game high 22 points in the first half.”  So if he is 16 as a freshman, he will be at least 20 when he is a senior. I believe California has a rule that you can be no more than 20 as a senior. I don’t begrudge his family for holding him back 2 years as they are playing the system within the rules. But it makes for a somewhat unlevel playing field.
