The reason I ask (not that our son will ever have that problem) is that I wonder if high school players are more likely to be distracted by their "press" than a college player. Werth himself says "The best advice I could give, especially now that I've been through it, is you stop reading, you stop believing everything said about you and you just go out there and play." ... so I was wondering if you think that is more a concern for the younger players than the older guys who are 3+ years older.
Just wondered what your thoughts on this were.
Too, there are clubs who really do prefer the college player for some very logical reasons
