I'll step in this a tad late, but still in it.

As a high school teacher, I know that some of the athletes get every single advantage needed to make it.

Our school has programs to pay for athlete SAT/ACT tutoring, after school study hours (where tutors are paid to help kids in class), they monitor grades, they do a ton of stuff to get them there. Now, sure, there are some poor counties where they can't afford it, but in most locations, they're heavily invested in putting those athletes in colleges, because it looks good on the program and the school. They get a ton of money spent on them, and they're not really shy about it.
