you can't make a NIL for the purposes of recruiting a kid
but, lol, you can make a legally binding document for a NIL agreement, that if the kid doesn't come, they don't get the money
the absurdity of wink wink recruitment
I don't think LB needs 'a donor'
ultimately to compete, LB is gonna need to facilitate a 'mirror' organization that (like a foundation) that, wink, wink, is not associated with the University, but can make NIL contracts (ok, not $8 million, reduce a number of zeros)
it won't be about throwing out $100k contracts, but certainly can compete in basketball with bounce-backs and get players to stay if they can get $10k or $20k (for a really good player, 4* quality) and build their 'brand' in addition to their schollie, in sports like basketball & volleyball, maybe a couple other niche athletes.
yep, a big if, liek the early Tark years, some money that was under the table can now be legit, like a star player shows up to a car dealership every other week for an 'appearance' lol
we shall see
I was holding my breath for that to happen and I just died.
So, as anticipated, the NIL becomes a way for donors to pay recruits to sign. Now, what we need at LB is a deep pocketed donor to start offering top recruits NIL deals (assuming the sign at LB).
crazy, what is interesting is that it alludes to 'trust' ....lol, trust in college sports an oxymoron
