lol, DLS recruits. Saying they don't is bigger BS than saying college players don't get paid. I know they do, bc they would try and recruit players from our team. We had a meeting one offseason about getting "the call" from DLS.
Provide one concrete example. They have been investigated multiple times. Always some guy claiming to know some guy who was recruited without having any actual hard evidence.
Nobody gets full scholarships to the school. They don't scout middle school athletes.
The bottom line is the school recruits for itself. When you have a good athletic and academic record for 20+ years parents want to send their talented kids there. They also benefit from having no district limitations in who can enroll.
If you've ever seen a good De La Salle team play you would know they win not because they have college talent but because of their execution and precision. Especially on their offensive line. Their lines DOMINATE on a yearly basis, and they do this with kids that are outweighed by other top teams. Who the hell would recruit 220 lb linemen (which is around what their line averages yearly)? They run a simple scheme and they run it as well as a HS could. They have a dedicated program that you don't see emulated by many other HS, especially in this area.
