I would guess advanced classes are 5 point A's, so the top 10 is probably around a 4.3 or 4.4 gpa (2d year of foreign languages, 2d year chemistry, 2d year physics, etc are 5 point A's, while first year are 4 point A's).

Exactly! Plus if he takes non-AP/pre-AP classes such as electives or, I don't know, basketball class, which don't carry the bonus points, even if he scores 100% in the class, such grades still dilute the GPA and impact class rank.

For a kid who is blessed with athletic abilities, it's not a big deal. He still gets the free ride. For a kid with only academic skills, it makes it really tough to deal with the quotas, i.e., top 10%, top 8% or the whatever the cut-offs are these days.

Yes, I have a senior who recently dropped from top 8% to top 10.5% because of drop outs or departures even though his GPA went up.

I understand. I have a kid who was a starter on both the varsity soccer and varsity basketball teams as a freshman and as a sophomore. She dropped both sports prior to her junior year because continuing would hurt her GPA. But she stayed with Division 1 soccer and AAU basketball until she graduated, then turned down D1 scholarships in both sports in favor of academic scholarships at a D3 school. It about killed me to see her drop high school sports to avoid having her GPA dinged, but I could understand it and accept it.

Agreed! I hate to see kids have to choose between GPA/class rank and playing high school sports, perhaps their last opportunity to play a sport they love at a competitve level, or taking an elective to explore a previously unknown area for them, but it's part of the game that has to played today.

A byproduct of Braun's seeming (and actual, per one situation I know about) indifference to recruiting Houston is that we have had zero transfers in from D-1 programs to mitigate the stampede of transfers out.

One positive attribute of the WTW regime that--it seems to me--could be maintained is the annual or bi-annual transfer of a Greater Houston kid who had gone far away, and then for whatever reason not had it work out. Trey Stanton wasn't good enough to build a program around but he was a decent role player with plus size. IIRC, there was a kid from Okie State who played a key role on one of our NIT teams.

I talked briefly with Coach Braun Saturday and he said he was going to get a commitment from a top player.

RE: 2013 Basketball Recruiting
what a great sounding kid and prospect. UK fan buddy of mine said the kid's dad played for Tubby at UK--that is how Tech got on the list.


Still, I'm jaded on Braun's retention record. Every great recruit he signs, I fell like he's in a blue dress and Rice fan is in a yellow shirt.

Men sign 2 in early signing period but Davis isn't listed yet. I think we have 3 scholarships available (?) so it's possible we announce him later. I haven't seen anything that suggests he signed with someone else.

Hopefully, Davis will wait to see who Rice gets as new Head Coach and let him have a crack at him. Rice is still the same university as it was academically, which was supposedly very important to Davis, now it arguably will be a better Coaching situation as well:

According to this (free) Scout.com article, Rice isn't one of Jackson Davis's final 7. Still 2 really good academic schools on the list, with some others that are at least decent enough.

Rhoades hosted him at the game last night I believe. It was said there was a recruit from the LA area with Rhoades.
