Kids who choose to enter the portal

Do they not reach out to past recruiters or other schools to see who would or will offer and gauge their market value before just quitting their current team and dumping a free education?

This is mind blowing and seems criminal to sit back and watch these young adults in many cases throw their futures away.

So you didn’t make the nfl…well at least you have a bachelors degree from xxxxx that you can fall back on.

You ask if they reach out to past recruiters; Well ask yourself this; If you were a past recruiter, would you want to take back a kid who 2 years ago rejected your offer the first time because he thought some other school offered something better?
Besides it easier, IMO, to enter the portal and let the recruiter do his job. If he wants you he will do the reaching out.

I’m not entering the portal until another school is a guarantee. Seems dumb to enter the portal and sit on your hands waiting on somebody to show interest. Probably against the rules to go about it this way but seeing no one enforces the rules why would it matter.

If another school is a guarantee, there would be no need to enter the portal. However if you were getting no response from previous recruiters what other course would you take?

Figure you have to portal and then your guaranteed team would get you from there.

Maybe maybe not. Depends on the situation. If I offered 2 years ago, that means I did enough homework on the kid to want him play for me. So if I had a major need and he reached out then yes I would. It’s nothing personal, it’s business

Great question RJC.***

That's the problem with the portal, we know some real shady sh!t going on.

My understanding is that there can be no contact with a school until a player is in the portal.

People in general, and that age in particular, tend to have an overinflated sense of self worth when it comes to how important they are to the team/job/etc., which was supported for these guys when they went through the initial recruitment. I suspect many are genuinely shocked when they see the market has dried up a bit when they enter the portal, but it would be hard to convince them otherwise until they actually experience it the first time.

I agree 100%. It is the first time they have been told "no".
