Thompson didn’t PG. Neither did Naticoke. The Gates twins were 19 when they graduated high school. They all were “held back” somewhere along the way. Bottom line is that no 2nd grade or 3rd grade hold back is going anywhere in college unless they are ballers on the high school varsity level and it all evens out there with age. If you play in the New England prep school league you play against many 19 year olds and even a 20 year old or two. What better way to see how you stack up as a 16 year old. Complaining about hold backs is an excuse for not cutting it at the high school level.
