New Clemson commit proves not every recruit looking for fast NIL money

Not every high school prospect is looking for fast money.

Name, Image, and Likeness is the talk of college football and recruiting these days as schools jockey for position to dole out top-dollar to high school prospects. Some of those prospects are looking for the immediate effects of a paycheck. Some programs, like Texas A&M, are looking to find ways to finally buy their way into national relevancy.

With rules surrounding NIL nebulous, the entire process is a mess right now, causing head coaches to squabble publicly and some football parents to shop their players to the highest bidder instead of looking at the best fit from both a football and education standpoint.
