Kids make decisions for different reason. Its the coaches job to do 2 things; get the kids exposure and make sure the graduate. With that being said, the two kids that went prep did not have to. They wanted to go another route to get exposure to the schools of their choice. If one school wants you at RB, but you can go to a FBS school as a SS...prep is your best bet. If you can go to another D1 school, but the school of your choice requires more...prep school. Now, those two will probably be in a better situation. Again, Dunbar sends their kids to school...not always D1 or DAA but alot to the Bowies,Frostburg, Virginia State etc

It should puzzle you because you are not the kid or his parents. Again, if the school that you wanted to attend had a requirement that you didn't qualify for, but lets say there were others that would...would you go to prep school to qualify or would you simply go to the school where you qualified. Again, Dunbar's job is to assist the athlete on exposure and a vehicle to get to college. The student and their parents do the rest...
What some message board new jacks might not know is that over the years Meth has trumpeted the large number of Dunbar kids with major college offers. However, recently these offers haven't materialized into kids on campus. Great football skills mean nothing if the books ain't right. Tavon, Perry, Ayers and Onuekwesi handled their business but others haven't. For the ones that haven't, prep school is a viable avenue to pursue their goals.
Kids mostly go the prep school route because they didn't get the qualifying score on their last chance in May on the SAT or ACT or they don't have the gpa. Zach Brown had to go this route before UNC and a 2nd round pick to the Titans this past. Prep school is mostly for kids looking to improve their gpa, sat, or act to get in the door.
Darin Washington is down there too. As is Tyrin Tyson from City.
