In My opinion aau basketball is way more helpful because you are getting exposed to many more scouts and alot more different places where as in High School you mayybe recruited but it would be alot harder and a bit more time comsuming...Especially if you live in a small town..AAU is alot better simply because of more Exposure !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Totally, i would definitely agree with PureGreatness. AAU is the way to do it. If you want to get exposure, better competition, and better coaching, AAU is the way to do it now. It used to be that High School basketball is where it was at, but not anymore. You should definitely still play high school ball, but if you are a serious player who wants exposure, competition, and good coaching, you should play AAU as well. So, in this case i would pick summer/spring basketball over high school basketball. AAU is the way to go.
