i resent that. I say that would prolly happen for football or basketball, but for tennis those girls are not only talented in their sports but also in the classrooms. ANY of these Ivy league schools would kill to get any of those high recruits, but the difference between the Ivy recruits and the Uf recruits are that the girls in UF play amazing tennis and study hard. You can't say the same for the ivies.
I'm sorry, but that is ridiculous. First of all, Ivies get amazing recruits all of the time. Princeton last year got three of the top fifteen recruits in the country. Second, it's impossible to compare academics at a big state school with academics at an Ivy. Of course, some
of these girls are probably putting a lot of effort into their academics, and I'm sure many of them are very intelligent, but the difference is that all
athletes have to study hard to stay on top of their work. At larger schools there is a huge range, so you can take very challenging classes and work your ass of, or you can skirt by barely doing any work at all. There is a range at Ivies too, but it is much, much smaller. The reason that these girls who are blue chip recruits usually don't excel like they would at a Florida or a Cal or a Baylor is that they have limitations on practice time, and they have
to devote a huge portion of their time to their studies, thus a lot of them drop off from their junior levels, because many were used to being home schooled or taking online classes and playing for six hours a day, which is just impossible at an Ivy.
