As much as people gripe about Catholic schools here. The top teams; Warren Central, Ben Davis, Penn, and Bloomington South(or at least they were a top team a few years ago) are all still public.
In Ohio, I think a public school actually has an advantage if it can keep its own kids. EG Colerain kept its own kids while Moeller, St. X, Elder, and Lasalle dilluted all the other top players.
It's more prominent in the smaller schools in ohio - particularly in basketball where one elite player can carry a team to state.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
