Really? So they are not thinking that college ball may ultimately lead to the pros and millions of dollars? Really?
Agreed. I don't know how many kids I've heard this year talking about going to the pros in 3 years including Nkemdiche. This is the main reason they go through this.
Didn't Jeremy Hill greyshirt and then get the starting position by the end of his first season? Next, year will be a great need for defensive tackles just like defensive ends this year.
So what's so horrible about a greyshirt if you only have to pay for one semester and you can still go pro in two years? Is it a pride thing. Did Hill just have patience? If Trindon greyshirted, did he just have more patience?
Pride certainly can cloud judgement.
I can't sympathize because kids accepting entry into West Point have to do a year of prep school anyway before they will officially be able to enter the West Point program.
If TCU has a better staff that can offer him the best chance to get to the NFL, then so be it. Just make sure that's the reason for going there.
