Can high school players skip college ball to go to the pros without ever playing a minute in the NCAA?

Yes, it's actually very common in baseball. Fortunately, though, MLB teams are starting to lean towards college players more than high school players.

You're eligible for the MLB draft three times (basically): 1. After your senior year of high school. 2. After your junior year of college. I actually know someone who was drafted after their junior year of college, then went to school for the next two fall semesters to finish his degree. If you're drafted after your junior year, you have until the next year's draft to sign, otherwise you're put back in the draft, and that team no longer owns you (but they can draft you again). 3. After your senior year of college.

Other sports such as basketball and football (American) don't allow this, though athletes can leave college early if their prospects are very high.

A professional game is generally 48 minutes of playing time broken down into 4-12 minute quarters. A college game is 40 minutes of playing time broken down into 2-20 minute halves. A high school game is 32 or 36 minutes of playing time depending on the state. It is broken down into either 2-16 minute halves, 2-18 minute halves or 4-8 minute quarters. Summer leagues and tournaments vary, usually having 2-20 minutes halves with the clock not stopping until the final two minutes or so of each half. Younger players may play 24 minutes games or even as low as 20 minute games.

In college basketball, they play two 20 minute halves, so 40 minute games.
