Because there are roughly 4 times the amount of college prospects than HS prospects.
I'd be surprised if that is true across the board.
In this year's draft in World Major Leagues, for example, there were 208 HS prospects drafted and 637 JC/COL prospects drafted, so barely over 3:1. I suspect there's a somewhat wide range.
Interestingly also in S21 Major Leagues, 69 of the top 205 (first 5 rounds) were HS students, so of the most likely future ML players the ratio was closer to 2:1.
First round (non-sup) picks: 14 HS prospects and 20 JC/COL prospects.
