    Were there others that went to schools below DI? If a school sends 1 to D1 and 4-5 to DII and 2-3 to NAIA and 4-6 to DIII, that is pretty strong. I have no clue on a number but if a school from one class sent over 6 to some collegiate level, that would seem to be a pretty strong class.

    Just looking at D1 is to me a misnomer. A team loaded with players that move on to the next level to play college ball, I would believe, is better than a team with 1-2 D1 players and that is it.

    I have known many of athletes and more specifically parents that have felt that if their child did not end up at a D1 school, it was a disappointment. Playing at NAIA for a Georgetown, DII with an EKU or a DIII level with Thomas More is not and SHOULD not be a disappointment. Some look at it that way, though.

    I understand what you're saying. I'll need to look up old rosters, and then google names, yada yada yada....I'm in no way knowledgeable enough to produce such information without some research.

    Don't feel like you have to do all that googling unless you want to. You must have work that you would rather be doing.

    That would be two good football threads. Which team had the most players go on to the next level and play football? Which team had the most players go on to professional football at some level?

    Nope, gave you an easy way out. Start a thread and let the BGP crew take over.

    The only problem with this exercise is that ANY player can "play" at the "next level" if they want. It's called walking on, or D3, etc.

    And maybe my lack of knowledge of football plays into it for me. That would not be true of basketball.

    D3 sports are set up like high school. You show up for tryouts or in the case of football you just show up. There aren't 'athletic' scholarships for NCAA D3 sports. Kids going to Centre, Hanover, Kenyon, etc aren't there to get a job playing in the NBA or NFL.

    It does not mean they were not recruited though. Some do go and show up for tryouts while some are recruited and the coach at the D3 school wants them there.

    Yeah, recruited for the privilege of paying $28,000 or more per year to go there...Sports really are an extra-curricular activity at these schools...nobody is going to Centre just to play ball.
