If you can't make it onto a D1, D2 or D3 team, there is always a Club Team and you will have much more fun as it is much less demanding in terms of conditioning, practice and travel. This way you can focus more on academics while in college.
Great post. Play tennis for the love of the sport.
Even if you don't get on a D1 team, you will have a sport that you can enjoy, hopefully, into your 70's and make lifelong friends along the way.
