I ask in light of this de-commitment from yesterday.
“The landscape of football has changed tremendously since I last visited with schools…” is an observation I’ve seen discussed in several different quarters on the intertubes as referring to what’s going on with NIL rights. Now, Georgia has its version of a law that permits compensation for a player’s NIL rights, but that law also contains the pooling provision that has some, including me, worried about it being used as a negative recruiting weapon with recruits.
I can’t say this came into play with this kid in particular, but I’m not dumb enough to think it couldn’t. I’m not dumb enough to think it’ll be the only time, either, especially if it turns out to be effective. Kirby may have his work cut out for him here.
