The local football talent here in Utah really is amazing. Alternatively, the basketball talent is very poor. Makes what Larry K has been able to cobble together all the more impressive.
Penei Sewell - 2021 Top 5 Pick

I understand that NFL rosters have 5x more openings, but that means there should be at least 5 or 6 NBA players from local high schools given there are at least 25 NFL players from local high schools. I’m probably missing several.
A lot of high NFL draft picks from local high schools, this year two in the top 5, maybe even top 3. Good grief.
