I'd say it would have been much better for him to go to college..

I had no idea who he was until I saw the news this afternoon, but it struck me that there was no mention of what he is going to do, other than become a professional runner. Is he simply foregoing college, at least for the foreseeable future? I've never been a big fan of the NCAA, and I think that many young people have made bad decisions in choosing colleges based on a particular school's athletic program and the carrot of an "athletic scholarship," but I'd be uneasy about letting a planned 800-meter career completely derail a formal education at this point.
