not sure where to post this, but interesting article on a 13 year old who claims is going to skip college & go this year pro A Soccer Pro at 13? Olivia Moultrie Will Give It a Try - The New York Times the article mentions that a 4 year scholarship is on average worth $300.000 at a top D1 school. Accept maybe Harvard or Stanford, I got a hard time believing that as most D1's are public. Besides, the coach usually does there at most too discourage players from taking top notch academics like nursing, as it would take way too much from soccer. So after 4 years, your stuck with an bachelor's in PE, anything higher or masters is another 2 years(which isn't covered by a soccer scholarship) anybody agree or disagree?
