A few scenarios:
1. The current school he is attending is not ideal for his high school football career. Either his current team is second rate - below average team, coaches, and facilities. Team will have a small chance of making the playoffs or a certain first round drubbing.
2. Coaches have him completely out of position or their scheme will not allow the player to reach his potential. So they're playing a running back at guard or the player has all the tools to be a solid QB or WR but the coach will not throw the ball.
3. Player only plays defense at a big 5A or 6A program but could be the star running back at the local 2A or 3A school.
There is an opportunity to make a legit transfer to another school with a team that he can contribute on right away and have more team and individual success. Anyone transfer for the above reasons and regret it? Anyone choose to stay at their school and regret that?
What would you recommend for a young, talented player in one of the above situations ? Stay at a school you've always attended or transfer for a better football opportunity?
