Transfer Portal Risk

Recommended Posts

From an article on ESPN talking about the no-sit rule passing


"There's over 2,000 kids that went into the football transfer portal," North Carolina coach Mack Brown said. "The last update that I got was that only 37% had a place to go."


Not all of the kids in the portal were on scholarship; but how many have lost their chance at having school paid for? Players want the freedom to move but for many the decision could change their future in a much different way than they planned.

NCAA rules already prohibit recruiting players who are not yet in the portal, but skirting tampering violations by making indirect contact with athletes through high school coaches or personal trainers is already a fact of life.

That's especially problematic in basketball, where the up-transfer -- a quality mid-major player leaving for a school in a traditional power conference -- has become common.
