This gets brought up in every state in every sport. While I have seen some serious issues related to recruiting, are you sure the private schools in your area really are recruiting? We looked up the histories on some kids in a private school while I was coaching in Oregon last year, and in the process learned a whole bunch about a classy group of kids and parents. Their kids had won the 2006 - 2007 state title last year, and were dominant again this year. As it turns out, most of the kids on the roster (9 of 12) went to elementary and middle school in the same school system they were still playing in. Of the 3 that transferred in, only one ( a senior) had played varsity anywhere else, and he was a bench player at the old and new schools.
