i think that college soccer serves a role but it should eventually end up being a picking ground for MLS coaches that dont get what they want/need in their own academies. I basically want to see the college game end up being used for supplemental drafts of players into MLS/USL/PDL etc. I am talking when the USSF changes and soccer continues to evolve in this country. The part where college soccer/highschool soccer in this country is clearly upside down is the financial disconnect regarding talent. Not all talent out there is poor, but its safe to assume a percentage of it is. To join a premier team you have to have money and time. Not all the talent (some does-but not all) in america has the money and time for high school level permier teams. The way the system is now does not allow for the highest possible percentage of talent to make it onto the pitch in front of coaches. Granted...I also have some serious reservations about high-school level coaches soccer IQ. I doubt many, maybe most, can truly recognize raw talent.
