There are exceptions to this. For example, a few years ago the top player in D2 was a guy that came to the states with an ATP ranking in the 600's. He was plenty good enough to be a very high level D1 player. Sometimes it's easier to slip a guy through at a D2 or NAIA school that may have "questionable" eligibility status.
