2023 5-Star Recruit Reportedly Signs $8 Million NIL Deal
© Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports
According to The Athletic, a 2023 recruit has signed an agreement with a school’s NIL collective that could pay him more than $8 million over four years. The recruit will be paid $350,000 almost immediately. This deal will then be followed up by monthly payouts that equal more than $2 million per year.
quote:

“Whatever casual sports fans or coaches think student-athletes are earning from collectives, they’re (undershooting) by 10X. While $2 million (a year) is wild, $200,000 isn’t, but most people are thinking they’re getting $20,000,” Lawrence told The Athletic.

Wade gets fired one day and a recruit signs an $8mil NIL deal the next. The hypocrisy is palpable.

To be honest, it seems like the “under the table” deals now become the NIL ones. The intent was for players to get paid for their likeness in a video game or a percentage of their jerseys sold, not as a salary. Maybe we are in the final days.

Enjoy your college football while you can. All that will be left is Ivy League-like games.

Clearly, there needs to a cap and some type of regulation. Of course, regardless of what they put in place, it will still be abused. So, never mind.

Lol, KajunTiger Mud_Bone is not a freaking student. There should be a cap placed on student athletes, they aren't freaking employees. If they want to be employees, things will get bad for them.

the end of college football as we know it is here. I'm not being overly dramatic - it's true, with NIL and the transfer portal.
