    Talking

    Spearman attends Simeon High School. The first thing I would ask is how are his grades?
    Oh, and for the Chicago residents and natives or all-seeing and all-knowing, that's not a slam. That's just as sad fact.:D

    Yeah, thats the same basketball factory/high school that Derrick Rose went to. You know the school were D's & F's magically become C's, and someone else sits for your SAT.

    I don't take offense Q, it has always been talked about for alot of the Chicago area Public Schools for that....always wondered how they got in to DePaul back in the 70's and early 80's...wondered if Ray was finagling the grades...

    I doubt Ray was playing with anyone's grades. During the final years of Ray's coaching days there were some kids from the Chicago Public League that couldn't quite hack it in the classroom. Teddy Grubbs was the main player. Anyways, the public league coaches claimed the Meyers weren't doing enough for public league players and there was a rift between DePaul and the Public League coaches. In the final years of Ray's coaching career and all of Joey's they had a hard time getting any decent players out of the public league.

Suddenly top recruits think it's a great place to go. At what point does UD get nailed for paying off recruits?

    I just took a look, and Simeon's produced quite a few pro players including Derrick Rose/Deon Thomas/Nick Anderson/ Bobby Simmons (NBA), Wes Chamberlain/Jeff Jackson (MLB), and Johnny Mitchell (NFL).
