Prep Basketball: Posley transfers to Auburn

Former Winnebago star and Ball State commit Marcus Posley has transferred before his senior season and will be attending Rockford Auburn High School this year.

According to sources, Posley is now living with his grandfather, who was awarded legal guardianship over the summer. There are no anticipated eligibility concerns with the IHSA because the legal guardian lives in the district.

Posley, a 6-1 guard, averaged 19 points and four assists per game last season while earning IBCA Class 1-2A all-state honors. He recently committed to Ball State University to play basketball.

There will also not be too much awkward transition for Posley at his new school. Many of the Auburn players play with Posley on his Pryme Tyme AAU team in the summer, a team that has played together for years and are very familiar with each other.

Pryme Tyme, coached by Doc Cornell, made waves this summer by winning several AAU championships and knocking off several of the top-ranked teams in the country on their way.

Among his teammates at Pryme Tyme are Fred Van Vleet, who also committed to Wichita State University this summer, and LaMark Foote, one of the rising unsigned seniors in the state.

The transfer of Posley makes Auburn, who lost last season in the IHSA super sectionals, a strong threat to make a trip down state this season.

    There is no way the IHSA grants him eligibility after reviewing the case. He is moving simply because of basketball and the IHSA frowns on that. If his family moves into the Auburn school district, it may be a different story. If that doesn’t happen, I don’t see the IHSA approving this one.
