Private schools have to do some level of recruiting. Many of the privates are Catholic schools. Over the years the Catholic schools teams were players who came from their parishes. Often times these students never attended a public school at all. Cincinnati Moeller changed that. Starting with Faust and their football they started actively recruiting kids/parents. Today you have Moeller football, basketball, etc. trying to get every good player they can in order to win. Many others have followed suit like Akron St. Vincent, Cleveland St. Joe's, Cleveland St. Ed's, Cincinnati Roger Bacon, and more Catholic schools who have rosters of students that aren't their parish kids. Then you have other non-Catholic private schools and certain public schools recruiting. Many people myself included don't believe this is in the spirit of HS sports. I know this is a GMC thread but this impacts GMC schools.
