During his appearance on The Rich Eisen Show, former NFL star QB Michael Vick shared that he would've stayed at Virginia Tech all four years if he had the opportunities that current college athletes do...
quote:

"I definitely think there could've been some dynamic numbers (at Virginia Tech)," Vick said. "Definitely been enough to keep me around in school. I wasn't the guy who wanted to leave early, but because of circumstances in my life I felt like I was forced to leave early. I wanted to enjoy that college experience. I feel like I was just growing into my own, growing into a man and I just didn't want to make life super serious, but sometimes as a young man you have to make adult decisions and that was the decision I made at the time.

"I would've boomed in the NIL space and I know it would've been done the right way. Man, great thing about is now, these kids get an opportunity to not have that pressure on themselves and now we get to pay it forward."

I thought professionals get paid more especially the first overall pick

But you were getting paid in the NFL right? WTF is the difference unless the pro game pays less...

VaTech NEVER gets Vick in the NIL age. Most likely A&M.

Think of the dog fighting ring he could have funded had he been able to start 3-4 years earlier. What a huge missed opportunity :/

Vick is a great guy who seems to have learned from his mistakes. Shame he is vilified more for killing some dogs than Ray Lewis is for murdering a man.
