The NCAA and NJCAA Presidents made myopic emotional decisions to blunt the impact of Covid for a relative hand full of current college athletes.
You are correct that collectively we need to move on from the "dumpster fire that is recruiting" but not by kicking the can further down the road. Some group is getting screwed, some roster is getting squeezed and some kid's dreams are getting an earlier expiration date than they might have without Covid. The NCAA and NJCAA Presidents pushed that target off thier current athletes and onto future recruits in the 2021 and 2022 classes.
Your suggestion just pushes it further down to younger kids. There are only so many highschool coaches with so much bandwidth and budget so some kids would never get to play high school ball.
The right thing to do is grow a pair and have a tough conversation with the kids in front of you instead of screwing the kids you will never have to see like the NCAA and NJCAA did.
