Where did you go ? [/quote]

The Big 5--SEC, ACC, Big 10, Big 12 and Pac 12--guarantee scholarships. Know first hand. They start low (and guaranteed for four years) for freshman year, then go up based upon effort, performance, leadership, etc. You don't want to commit 50% for four years and then have a kid decide not to play. . .
