SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Transfer rules have too many loopholes

Published: Monday, April 7, 2014 at 04:09 PM.

In my time, I've heard all the stories of kids transferring back and wanting to transfer back.

Parents want the best for their children academically and athletically, but sometimes the best thing you can give a child is stability.

It often seems like parents are more interested in their child achieving athletic success than success in the classroom.

We live in a world of professional sports free agency where every athlete has the right to choose where they will play. That mentality seems to have filtered down to high school athletics and ultimately could do more harm than good.

It's time for those in power at the state and local levels to put a stop to the madness, step up and find solutions for the transfer/recruiting dilemma.
