    It won’t cost him a scholarship. I don’t know how good he is, but what it would cost him is – depending on his level – the difference between a scholarship to USC and one to Oregon State. Or between one to OSU and one to San Jose St. Or between one to SJSU and one to APU.

    Why? So he’s just going to be a backup for a year? MD sure is not going to sit Daniels. No guarantee he will start as a senior. This is a bad move. If he would have stayed at Cathedral, he would have been better off. Besides grades and test scores, most colleges would want to see his junior and maybe even the first 4 or 5 games of senior year highlights. This move may cost him and his family a scholarship. Cathedral’s track record speaks for themselves.

    Mmmm, would Bryce Young be a good fit at Mater Dei? I don’t think they’ve experienced difficulty in the past acquiring talent at the Quarterback position.

    The importance our society attaches to religion is incredible, even though most people aren’t aware of it.
