No idea for DII, but for my team (DIII) you have to jump right around 14' to make the team. We have guys that go 14' occasionally to a couple that can jump 16'6" on any given day

From personal experience and what I've seen at meets and whatnot..
Anywhere from 6ft to 18ft. But to actively recruited and sought by coaches... it'll depend on the strength of their conference. Many D3 conferences 13ft will score some points. And obviously a bit higher for most D2 conferences.
If you know of some schools you're interested in, take a look at their conference results as well as the vaulters that they already have on the team and it'll give you a decent gauge as to what their coach will most likely be looking for.
Where are you at right now?

This. It varies a ton by school, you really need to talk to the coaches for each school you are interested in. You also need to find out which schools have the poles you need.
