I think it is important to consider whether you will enjoy your sport, but without knowing this, I will say that I found playing sports in college to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I was a division 1 college track and field athlete for all four years and I was able to balance a heavy practice schedule and class load. I found the challenge of being on a team very rewarding. Additionally, I made some of the best friends of my life from being on a team in college. Being on a team gives you a family at school and a group that you immediately have something in common with. All of this is not to say that there will not be difficult and challenging times, but if you are able to stay in a routine and stay organized I believe that it is an incredibly rewarding decision. However, it is important to make sure that you are a student first. Ultimately, people attend college for many reasons, but the primary reason should be to further yourself as a student. If you feel that you will not be able to balance sports and studies, there is no shame in focusing on academics. I hope this helps!
