Very simple - an 18-year-old kid's body is not fully physically developed (besides the rare LeBron James). They can get by with coming out of high school and going straight into the NBA, but in a collision sport like the NFL, it'll probably get them killed.

Very simple - $$$$$$$. Considering how many millions of dollars some of these schools make just for appearing in a bowl game (much less winning one), it's not that hard to figure out.
