I think it depends on the age group as it relates to college coaches. I was watching a DA college ID session and saw few if any coaches watching anything 04 DA or younger. And yes college coaches are going to be LOTS more interested in DA vs DPL. For DPL college stuff realistically you are looking at small D1 type schools and D2 and D3 mainly. You will see more interest at showcases once they hit u16, then definitely u17. And there has been some movement between DPL and DA. But be realistic, the vast vast majority of kids on DPL will never make a DA team. The top 1-2 on any DPL team are the ones that have the possibility of moving up. And it is just that, a possibility. Go look at the various rosters of del Sol and RSL. In terms of status you will see kids listed as PT (part time). That means they are playing on another team. Could be the club itself of some outside club. Even if it shows ZERO games played click on the kids name. You may find they played in a different age group. When you click on their name you will see games started and games played. If you have time you can go through the various games and pull up their exact minutes.
