Aram reporting that: Gevontray Ainsworth, who rushed for 1,469 yards and nine touchdowns last season as a member of the Covina High School football team, has checked out of Covina and enrolled at Monrovia.
Fred’s thoughts: What’s interesting about this is not so long ago Monrovia was losing players to the East San Gabriel Valley, but now that they’re dominating the Mid-Valley and winning titles, players are staying and transferring in. Remember when South Hills was winning and getting all the transfers before before moving to the Sierra? When was the last time you heard a legit transfer going to South Hills or Los Altos, which was the hotbed for transfers a few years back. Now it’s Monrovia, West Covina, and of course Charter Oak, who is still relevant after winning the Sierra. It’s like I’ve always said, if you win, the players will come, it has little to do with actual recruiting. But I will be very curious to see what CIF does with this because on the surface, it has athletic motivation written all over it. Aram also is reporting that a Pasadena player has transferred to Monrovia. At this rate, they might break West Covina’s CIF championship record of 84 points in a title game.
