Most D1 tennis players started playing from a very early age like 6 to 8. They are already veterans of the junior circuit with national rankings by the time they are in high school. The gap might be too big to make up for someone who started tennis at age 15. Thus D3 might be a more reasonable goal in this scenario. But you never know, Allen Fox, the legendary coach at Pepperdine started at 16 and became a world class player at the professional level.
