But your point is skewed by the fact that the NCAA players are already in university so naturally they will help your figures.
Also isn't there a majority of players not on athletic scholarships (or partial) so they are there for the education and the athletics are "fun and nice to do".
I suspect the % of CHL players who places a priority on education would match up favourably with the general high school population in Canada or the U.S..
