I was just reading something about a highly touted 2024. PG Grade of 9. The article was raving about his size and skill. He's also an ACC commit.
He's also 5 months younger than my son who is a freshman in college.
The funny thing is that nobody cares about his age. Being so much older benefits the player and the school team.
I've sincerely lost count on how many times I have seen a player be touted until the cows come home and nobody ever mentions the fact that he's a year or more older than his grade-mates.
Nobody cares. And, as widespread as the reclassification thing is, I'm surprised we don't see it happening even more because nobody cares.
HS junior the same age as a college freshman? No wonder why he's tearing it up playing 17u.
