Good Grief!!!!!!!!!!1 This just too young in my opinion. There is no way to stop somebody from turning pro at whatever age but 15????? Why are the parents allowing this???? Look how much 'of her life' she will be missing. No High School interaction playing on a team and all the benefits one gets from that. Same thing for College and the College experience is more important. I don't know, I know 'money' speaks but 15--wow!
