Yes, we all agree on that. However, there was a notion that before the NIL, that giving money to recruits/players was wrong, as in againstMoney has been involved long before the NIL
DL speculation is just that.
How do you know that VCU was his second choice?
No technically they cannot get paid to play basketball. NIL is not for playing ball, it is for recognition of name/image/likeness that one may gain from playing basketball. I have no idea what kind of NIL package VCU can put together or who we can compete with on that basis, but I do know we are still in the game with players who have been offered by P5/6 programs who supposedly have lots of NIL. This tells me we are maybe not as poor as some of us think in terms of NIL.All of those are definitely true as well. But the reality is, it’s not most of these kids dream to play college basketball. Their dreams and ultimate goal is to get paid playing basketball and now they can do it playing in college.
