Default What league is of the better quality? - NCAA Division III or NAIA?

I play football in the UK, and I'm just wondering what is the better of the two as I'm considering applying to play college next year.

NCAA all the way. NAIA would be like NCAA Division IIII.

I think naia is like division 2.5. There are some naia schools that could compete with D2 schools but then there are some that are composed of high school bench warmers. When i came out of high school a few of my friends, one from a naia school and another from D3, both told me of rampant steroid use on the lower levels due to lack of testing. Then i witnessed it on a visit, this turned me off from playing college ball. Probally more than you want to know but just my experiences.

the steroid thing is true....kinda suprised me too but like the guy said they dont get tested....also i think naia and ncaa division 2 get the same amout of scholarships....talent wise the better naia schools are better then the better d3 schools...if u look it up there were actually quite a few naia schools that beat some d1-aa schools last year

There are a lot of Division III schools that beat D2 schools so that doesn't differ the NAIA from D3

I give naia schools more credit because they are able to give athletic scholarships, while D3 schools arent supposed to. But they do indirectly.
