The thought of racing 8k's and running 80+ mpw makes me cringe. I have enough trouble with the 5k and anything over 40mpw, so college XC sounds like a nightmare. Do most college coaches have their 800m guys running cross?
Usually not, unless you were a pretty good xc runner in hs and put up better 400m marks than mile marks. Btw, if you think 8k is bad, imagine racing a 10k.
