The IHSA approved Commander’s transfer from Marist to Curie on Friday afternoon.

    where does the kid live is his is home CPS HS Currie or is it some other HS and he is finding his way to Currie ??? just like the kid who last year was living in Peoria playing for a Peoria HS played AAU ball and now ends up at Morgan Park?? now that is fishy so lets not get all nutty when catholic HS get players from a distance it is now time for the CPS to look in the mirror to question how kids end up at places to HOOP IT UP.

      Curie is not just a neighborhood school. They have an IB program that attracts students from all over the city. Many CPS students do not attend their neighborhood school and the overwhelming majority of them do not play sports. The transfer is legit, let it go.

    It’s absolutely amazing how you never touch that he went from a 17 to a 29 on the ACT. Real class act.

    Very sad. CPS will continue to be allowed to cheat. Players and parents will continue to be allowed to lie. Liberal fake news writers will continue to be able to write inaccurate fake news articles pressuring the IHSA to not enforce their own rules. Very sad indeed.

      And you can still write your ten high-horse whiney posts every day. Kind of a win-win, no?
