I agree with you however it may only be a NCAA Chmp thing, so everyone can relax.
Yes but it's only in the past few years top juniors have started looking at college as a real option. That's new. I have no doubt that as the teenage phenomenon continues to be less likely the numbers will increase but it will be 3-5yrs before that happens. If the rules change for dual season, which it doesn't look like, then there is no alternative pathway for the 99.9% who aren't old enough to break through at 18.
