"I'm not. She is an expert in the field. I'm sure she knows the difference. So far you have not presented any facts yourself. You just made a guess."

Looks like it was a pretty good "guess."

Only 2% of HS athletes get any sort of athletic scholarship to college, and most of those are not full scholarships, many are very minor scholarships.

Small percentages of HS athletes that go on to play any college varsity sports (a small fraction of HS athletes- from rad's post/source). Of the thousands of colleges in the USA, only a small percentage are DI and DII schools (from my previous post)- the only schools that offer any sort of give any athletic scholarship.

As an engineer, I assumed you had the mathematical chops to deduce that the percentage of HS athletes that go on to receive full scholarships is therefore extremely small.

Looks like I was wrong.
