yes i do realize that everything in life is a choice ... but if their dream is to play pro sports in america playing college ball is a huge stepping stone to that dream.. not everyone has the resources, family support, economic background etc to be as successful in academics as other people... if you ask me this is just a big indictment of americas secondary education (aka how did these guys graduate from high school if they cant read past a 4th grade level in the first place) .. but that is a whole other disscusion
