More of a due diligence thing.

We had an instance of a kid freshman year whose family moved out of the district (literally by blocks into Milwaukee) but he continued to attend as a non-Open Enrollee. No one noticed until mid-basketball season and then very swiftly was the proper paperwork taken care of to get him enrolled as an OE student for the remainder of his HS days.

I can see where a familiar student returning to the district might not be given the proper look-over. No excuse, of course.

From Reischel's article, it seems pretty clear that at least the coach, if not the school, knew the player shouldn't have been eligible from the very beginning but kept playing him anyways.

Should be a few open gigs at Middleton if that's the case.

Seems like errors made by several people.

Kid/parents

I can't help but think that someday someone is going to ask, maybe in court, if a kid is eligible in every other way; enrolled, attending, academics, conduct why is isn't he allowed to participate in a program offered by the school.

Social media being what it is it's very easy to see what many of the recent WI HS bball players are up to but to continue to see how many of them are transferring colleges to go play elsewhere is not surprising and probably more of a continuation of the trends we see at the HS and all levels. 

Wondering what the % of top 50 kids in the state each year actually finish at the initial college of their choice?

I mean in many states most of the top 50 aren't playing D1 let alone playing on a scholarship.  I would guess plenty of kids that go the NAIA, D3, and other small school route end of transfering for a multitude of reasons.  Financially or socially more often then sports related.  If you are trying to find any kind of trend youd have to go with kids that play at a certain level, not just a certain number due to demographics.

EDIT  Sorry misread your post.  I read in each state not in the state each.  

I wonder how many kids in the state play college basketball on a scholarship.

I was just curious about kids from WI. It's usually about 10-15 boys in WI that go D1 each year. Last year was really low like 3 or 4 so it does fluctuate. Breaking it down by D1, D2, D3, NAIA,JUCO etc is going to be much more accurate and give a better picture.

Isn't everyone who graduates from every HS a "Knight" or a "Tiger" or a "Spartan" for life?

You're telling me there isn't some other Nicolet student athlete that plays 3 sports well, carries a great GPA and is involved in clubs, student gov, or volunteering and attended for 4 years that wasn't better choice?

I get a kick out of the one way street "love fest" for some athletes, "We love you for life" and we will conveniently forget that you have no loyalty to us when you chose to leave Nicolet for "something better." 


** Addition - Is there a list of past winners of this award? Or others who received it this year or is this just a newly created thing?
