I’ve been pondering this and think it gives a major benefit to schools in big markets who can well afford to pay athletes for advertising their products, for signings, for camps , for appearing in TV ads or endorsements. The list is long.
Is there any reason “Big Money” wouldn’t change the dynamics of recruiting? Would schools in smaller towns be outbid by schools in bigger towns simply due more $$$ resources? Will this turn into a bidding war for 4* and 5* talent? If the better players get more money in LA, Houston, New York, etc, I’d think they may want to go there (coaching ability be dam#ed).
