Has anyone heard if the NFHS committee is considering moving to the NCAA mens free throw line-up? By this I mean allowing the first defenders to stand on the blocks. That extra 12" would give them a better angle to rebound the miss.
I saw the discussion on going to NCAA womens (first spot empty), but didn't see anything about the mens method.

I haven't heard anything, though I wouldn't doubt that it has at least been discussed. I think it has its advantages and wouldn't mind adding it to Fed

Do you have a reference for this? The last I saw, it was rescinded.

NCAA.org

See the attached Jan 14, 2003 news release from the NCAA. It appears thatI didn't read the last sentence in its entirety, in that the trapezoid will not be used.

BASKETBALL THREE-POINT LINE AND LANE TO REMAIN THE SAME

INDIANAPOLIS---The NCAA Executive Committee, meeting at the NCAA Convention, ruled that the three-point line will remain at its current distance (19 feet, 9 inches from the center of the basket to the outside edge of the three-point line), for all three divisions. The free-throw lane also will remain the current width and configuration.

An original recommendation from the NCAA Men's and Women's Basketball Rules Committees to extend the three-point line and change the free-throw lane to a trapezoid starting in 2004-05 for men's basketball, and to extend the three-point line for women's basketball starting in 2004-05, had been considered but the divisional governing bodies removed the free-throw lane piece from that proposal.

Start brushing up on your International Rules.
When using the trapezoid, isn't the first available spot higher then the current lane spot? i.e. where only 3 on each side available.

And the first sentence says that the 3-point line will remain the same.

Other than those two errors, though, you read it correctly.
