Why not? Bolles has always had kids from Nassau. I bet we will also see some transfer up to Camden with Herron there, which was a big key for them winning titles.  

Wouldn't it be easier for them to go to TCA or UC or any public on the Northside? 

 

Depending on traffic Nassau county to Bolles could be 30-60+ minutes depending on where it's from in the county

Bolles has much better academics than any of the schools you listed and UC is the same distance from Nassau.

Only public school on the northside of Jax is First Coast. It usually works the other way. Kids leaving there to head to Nassau schools. Like Jags904 said kids have been leaving nassau for years heading to Bolles. Trinity has dipped into Nassau as well. The big OT they had this past year is from Nassau. As for Bolles Nassau isn't much farther than all the regular students who go to Bolles from Ponte Vedra.

I didn't realize how far a drive Ponte Vedra was until I had to ride that distance in 2019 playoffs 

 

St Augustine didn't even feel as long a ride a few weeks ago as Ponte Vedra was

Yulee/West Nassau have been benefiting from North Jax parents who don’t want their kids in DCPS. There’s a lot of movement in the area that people from outside don’t realize.

Kinda like many from the outside incorrectly assume that TCA is the cheaters yet get less transfers than several publics in Duval that the local media try to make sound like teams "winning with homegrown talent"??

How far of a distance is that?

As the crow flies, the two schools are about 30 miles apart.  But, if memory serves me correct, there is only one public high school in Hardee County.  So, kids who live in the eastern part of the county could easily live as close, if not closer, to Sebring High School than Hardee High School. 

That said, I was not aware that kids could cross county lines to attend a public school in a neighboring county as part of the whole school choice thing.  I could understand why a tax-paying landowner in Highlands County might raise a stink about Sebring High School using his tax dollars to educate kids from Hardee County . . . unless, of course, the kids are really good in football, in which case he'll probably just keep his mouth shut.   B)

The whole school choice was that someone could attend ANY school in the entire state as long as they aren't at capacity

Pretty sure these kids don't live in the eastern side of the county.

Lakeland getting an OOS transfer 

 

I wonder how many would cry recruiting and cheating if it was a private :rolleyes:

I have acknowledged that, in a time of open enrollment, public schools regain an advantage over privates. By far the biggest variable predicting success now is the location of the school. Those located in urban areas with loads of talent will have a significant edge over those located in suburban or rural areas. STA still has a major edge because it's located smack dab in the middle of the most (football prospect-wise) densely populated region of the country (and it's also got a very wealthy alumni and current student base, making it a wealthy school).

As far as this Burroughs kid goes, I don't see him playing much unless he can play OLB. Lakeland is loaded at the other positions he lists on his profile. Lakeland will start one OOS transfer on the OL, a kid from South Carolina moved down and played spring with the team.
