Are prep schools legit?? Tim Floyd has picked up a second recruit from Heat Academy. It is a prep school that assists high school players who have not passed their ACT or scored high enough on the SAT to enter college. In fact most that attend are gifted atheletes but challenged academically. It is not free either, the tuition to these schools for room, board, and books is north of $10,000. Rashanti Harris has also attended Patterson Academy (now defunct) and has not been eligible for college admission and clearance by NCAA for two years. My question other than are they legit—-is this a better route than Jucos since all from prep schools if eligible at UTEP are somewhat older than the typical freshman. by JACELP on May 3, 2010 1:24 PM CDT MinerMike: Bumped from another thread as I believe this topic deserves it's own attention.
