FACT: Currently there are different eligibility requirements for three of the four high school grades which dictate if you can even play as a freshman at the D1 or D2 level.
My brother was highly recruited out of high school for football. My father was a great athlete in his own right but did not go to college and was unsure of what it takes to play in college. Out of necessity he learned as much as he could about recruiting standards, eligibility, etc. He did this by talking with parents, college coaches, and college athletes. My brother was fortunate enough to attain a scholarship to Stanford University and eventual went on to play for 9 years in the NFL. Now, my father is the foremost expert on this subject and we speak at high schools all over the country.
