I disagree. I'd like to see how this would be valued and compensated. Plus, I bet if you looked at the academics of most of these stars, you'd see alot of correlation, and lowered academic standards to admit them.

No thanks, that smacks of a farm system. Raise the academics and let the players and their families decide out of HS whether to go pro or to college. And admit only those players who fit in academically. One's undergraduate transcripts are still considered decades in the future. Why Peter Principle teenagers who have neither the background or study ethic into big time college sports?

The college games have survived the one and done and early entry rules. Not admitting academic question marks doesn't mean they can't go to college. There are plenty of small schools and jucos for them to qualify, enroll and play to improve their standing.
