Default The Ugly World of College Recruiting....

"Curtis claims McKnight is obeying all the rules. If the player is doing it because he believes it is the proper thing to do, he believes in the NCAA's amateur rules, then good for him; he is a person of great principle.

Because to do so would be to ignore a world around him that's been complicated by grown-up things like hurricanes and FEMA and insurance companies, that is filled with desperate coaches, cash machine agents and insanely rich boosters who can solve many of those complications instantly.

It would be to wade through mixed messages NCAA rules on one side, NCAA representatives smashing those rules on the other.

It would mean agreeing to keep his mom and brother in that small apartment while he goes and makes millions for his college coach and tens of millions for his new school, not including all the ancillary businesses, including, indeed, media like me. "

wow that's a great read. he really sounds like a great kid...somebody i think a lot of other athletes will look up to. seems to me he has very strong principles, something i'm assuming his mother taught him. either that or he's afraid of gettin' hit by her! lol

lsu, ole miss, and usc. wow 1 school is going to get really lucky. i really hope he picks ole miss but i think that's a long shot... imo (not knowing anything about this) i see him going to lsu...he'd be real close to his mother, brother, and high school coach which sounds like is a big part of his life. they sure have an advantage lsu does....too bad. oxford is a pretty town and i think he'd love it!

Good article. I wish I were young and talented enough to find out what I'd do.

I wouldn't take the money. Not because of moral or beliefs or whatnot, but because I suck with money. I'd probably buy a bronze toilet with a rubies all over it. It'd probably be mostly purple, too.
