why can't you play soccer in highschool? does brazil not have highschool soccer?
a few girls on my travel soccer team got to play in college without playing in high school. That was because our team went to college showcase tournaments and the scouts found them there. So NO. you dont need to play in high school, but you should be playing some type of organized soccer on a team in brazil.
but some of the players in my club have gotten drafted right out of highschool and attended professional practices AS WELL AS their college practices. these are the better players who go on to get actual playing time in MLS and be stars
but if you really love the sport you should try to play in high school to get the extra practices and game times.....playing HS soccer really developes you as a player.

No there have been many players that come in and make it as a walk on. It won't matter how good you were in high school of your good in college. Be a good player and anything can happen for you.
