A waste of scholorship money as well. One of the reasons the NFL has an age limit is that high school football players are not as physically mature as a college fb player. I don't see that to be an issue in the NBA, though. If someone can play coming out of high school,then they should be allowed to play. Anyone have stats of the success of high schoolers who made the jump to the NBA? I haven't heard of many failures. I think that these kids are evaluated to make sure they can handle the rigors of the NBA before they're even considered.
