Once again, it is not "college players" but "very good college players."
The difference is that many rec players with high net clearance get it by moonballing or mini lobs. It is quite different from getting it by aggressive top spin, which also has a large forward momentum. Quite a different beast altogether.
Very good college players do not really have anything in common with rec players. The gulf is huge. If you think that D1 players are like rec players, you are completely wrong.
