It's not just the money, it's the court size. HS courts are shorter. You want to move the line 3ft closer to a division line which would only leave about 17ft between the line and the top of the 3pt arc. Defensively teams would love the fact that it would be very challenging to shoot behind a high ball screen for a 3. The 5ft difference between court sizes currently is pretty proportional for the distances.
I don't see it happening, NFHSA does not like implementing anything which costs the schools money, and to link high school sports with college sports aspirations would be an additional reason why they would not want to. Why make a change to the rule when a negligible amount of high school players overall ever get a chance to play in college?
