If you are already a 4.5/5.0 then you are already good enough to play D1. Some D1 schools have players who would be 3.5 if they were allowed to rate that low. However, if you plan to go to D1 to get an athletic scholarship at a good academic D1 school, you will probably need to be at least 5.0 and maybe 5.5 level.

I coach D3 and my first singles was rated 5.5 and second singles would be rated 5.0. We played a team in the fall that had 4 former D1 player transfers. We won 5 of those 6 courts (singles and doubles).
