As high school football is about to begin, can the UHSAA make some better rules when it comes to recruitment? As Juan Diego Catholic and Judge Memorial Catholic can open and close the doors to any prep athlete, the UHSAA can make it fairer to the schools they compete against by bumping them up completely to class 4A. (Judge Memorial plays 3A in football and 4A in basketball and baseball.)

That should be a consequence for being able to recruit junior high school athletes entering high school and offer them free school tuition to play for their teams.

These other small-town 3A schools don't get to recruit athletes from across the Salt Lake Valley. Make these private schools be the "underdog" for once.
