Well considering the current top 10 has only 3 on age 2023’s....
Pretty soon the reclassing won’t matter, because everybody will be reclassed and older. The advantage will be gone. Then everybody will be double reclassing.
What’s interesting is, how the non-hotbed, west coast kids are starting to reclass. It is definitely catching on past the East coast.
Well, if you can’t beat em’ join them! Duh! Of course if they are seeing the advantage of reclassing - they are also going to do it.
YES! there is a huge advantage. Not necessarily size, it’s extra year(s) of developing skills and game IQ! Huge to have two extra years. Plus, we know how it plays out physically whether or not kids catch up in size or not? The extra training / skills is the key. So, blah , blah , blah…. There is totally an advantage and I think it will be more the norm going forward instead of just a couple on a team.
