Unless you know you are going to get some sort of scholarship, I would always put academics ahead of tennis...
For example, our no. 1 high school player, Brent Lett, knew tennis was going to be the direction he was going at. He dropped out of a program and just took all honors so he could spend more time playing tennis.
And he did end up getting scholarships from colleges like Michigan and Clemson.
I don't have that type of security yet. I'm a high 3/low 4 star player, which means I will probably get to play tennis somewhere, but I need to keep up my grades too.
