How good is JV coach, and how committed is that team, how often do they practice, do they play year round like Varsity? In most cases no.
Most first year Varsity players aren't going to be ready and won't get a major role regardless of class, so it's advantageous to get started as early as possible.
The player gets much more development practicing and playing with Varsity players year round and can get their playing time in 30-50 Spring/Summer/Fall games not to mention practice every day which will develop them a lot more than 20 regular season JV games.
Btw, I used to think the opposite on this but my experiences have changes my perspective.
