Kepler is a different case for sure but IIRC he enrolled in HS and I think his parents even moved (not sure about the last one).
After signing, Kepler and his Mom moved to Fort Myers in September. He enrolled at the high school across the street from the Twins complex and began his career in EST. The next spring he was in spring training followed by a summer in the GCL. I am not certain how long his Mom stayed in Florida, however, I don't believe she was in Elizabethton in 2011.

Seth you'd probably know more than I would. I always thought they had a dorm type thing in Fort Myers?
No. The Red Sox got one with their new ballpark a few miles away. It is one of the things the Twins are working at getting out of a new agreement with Lee County that Bill Smith is working on.
