As to your point about Division-I talent not being offered a Division-I opportunity...well you have overlooked a very important detail. The D-I programs have many more kids on their radar screen than those they ultimately offer. So when these kids receive little or no attention from D-I schools, it probably means that they aren't really D-I kids.
Though you haven't admitted it, you have aligned with my point precisely. The D-II and D-III programs have very good opportunities, but that action doesn't heat up as quickly as the D-I recruiting. Whether these particular kids have what's required to be recruited at those levels remains to be seen.
Finally, Trip, these kids are clearly listening to the street agents. Their parents, who have no real frame of reference, have delusions of D-I stardom. It's a shame. You can quibble with me if you like, but it is the kids who will be hurt due to the lack of proper adult direction.
