I am currently a Junior in high school applying for college next year... YET, the thread is not about me :P
My brother, who's 19 years old, and I are both from Brazil (we are born in the US, though). He already completed high school (in Brazil), but is 1 year and a half already pretty much not doing anything
His dream is of playing soccer professionally. For this reason, he plays soccer everyday at a soccer field close to our house, exercises there, etc...
He's REALLY, REALLY, REALLY good! So many people have told him that he should be a PRO already, and I agree with that.
The problem that frustrates him: US's system favors only who goes to college or who pays a lot of money in one of this so-called "academies" where you pay to play and then, with some luck, seem by a scout and drafted.
He (and I, too) doesn't want to wait for 1 or 2 years in a community college to transfer to a 4-year university to THEM be drafted (and it might even take more time!); he wants to play in a team competitively as fast as possible, and then become a PRO.
So, my question is: is there ANY college (either in California, where we live, or somewhere else) that has special admissions for someone like him, or just asking for 1 semester to transfer, or whatever? Is not that he wants to get in easily, it's just that at his age, in Brazil, kids are already pro, having 3 years of experience...
Is there anyone that could help? Thank you!
And sorry if I'm posting on the wrong section >_<
