Look, it happens. I remember several years ago there was a guy who was in the Air Force who had a couple of sons who were studs. He was stationed at Maxwell, but chose to live in Hoover so his sons could play ball there. There was also a very successful coach who did the same type thing at one of the large schools in the northern suburbs of Montgomery. He was so successful he went on to be a head coach at a D-I college school...

Several years ago, Mailon Kent, Sr (former AU QB) wanted his son (M.K. Jr) to play on a state championship BB contending team. He brought in two players from Jefferson Christian Academy by providing apartment accommodations for their families in Mountain Brook (he owned the units) so their sons could play for the school. One of the two later signed with MS State. M.K., Jr went on to AU but not as an athlete.

Tyus Boswell was one of them. Went to Moo U.

The other at one point flirted with UAB but I don't think had the grades.

Just a guess, but I definitely think this move had more to do with making a statement about Hewitt's football recruiting than it did anything else. Word is that Hewitt has several new additions, including the Florence running back that gained nearly 400 yards against them in the regular season finale.

The point of my observation was that wealthy neighborhoods / school districts can use that wealth to recruit the better players who might otherwise play for less endowed schools. It works the same way in college level sports in that wealthy programs can provide greater creature comforts than their "poor relations".

My father knew, and had a great dislike for, the guy who'd recruited them to JCA in the first place. Dude was livid to have them "stolen" from him.

Was trying to recall the JCA recruiter's name and hit on this old thread. Seems some things never change (in this case, it was Clay-Chalkville doing the recruiting):
