SD Previews: Where They're
Now & Where They're Headed--(Dec. 5, 2003)
CIF San Diego Section HS
This year, as in years past, our San Diego Previews are brought to you courtesy of the San Diego Basketball Coaches' Association. Much of the material which follows in this and other related articles will have already found its way to various newspapers in San Diego, including the SD Union Tribune. We haven't checked the papers, and even if they do publish some of this stuff, the info will likely be formatted differently....but that's beside the point. We want to pass the info along, in a semi-timely fashion, so we're not going to procrastinate any longer. And before you ask, we can't exactly explain who the SDBCA really is, or who had input into putting this stuff together. Just know this: We didn't do it, so if you disagree or think this stuff is just too wacky, well, blame them, not us. And if it happens to be an accurate prediction of how the season turns out, then of course, we're going to take all the credit.
This aspect of our previews is really sort of interesting: Who's headed to colleges, who the players to watch are in terms of recruiting potential which has been identified thus far in terms of college potential, and a special section (below) about who has transferred (at the high school level) and where they will be this season
