Jaydon Blue, Quinn Ewers and The End Of High School Senior Football Player


Recommended Posts

Jaydon Blue skipped to keep his legs healthy. Ewers to get coin. What will high school football look like now that it’s become a financial decision?

All trolling and baiting aside, I don't really see this as terribly relevant to 99.9 percent of student athletes. 

It's one thing if elite national superstars like Quinn Ewers or (closer to home) Jalen Hale decide to graduate early and start their collegiate career. Especially if they've already committed to a program and have met all academic criteria to receive their diploma. Obviously it's not entirely applicable to Hale either, at least not *this* year. Maybe next year... 

Ewers has decided on Ohio State. He's locked in. He no longer wants to be a Dragon, and wants to focus 100 percent on becoming a Buckeye. He's on pace to graduate at the semester mark. Thus, he's can enroll at Ohio State as soon as January, and start training as a college athlete. 

Again, that's an extreme minority of athletes at the top .01 percent of the class.

It’s time to kill the ncaa and form an organization that has foresight to see the changes that need to be made

I’ve been saying this for years.  A league for 18-24 yr olds.  And the NFL should form it and pay for it.  They won’t, but they should

That’s what college football basically is.  It just needs some better guidance.   Just like the NIL rules.  It’s gonna be a free for all as there’s little understanding of how it’s to work.  There should’ve been a set of guidelines on what is and isn’t allowed beforehand.  No foresight, just pass the rule and have at it

Just imagine, toward the end of the 2028 college football season ... #1 Alabama and #10 Boise State are the last two standing after a 16 team playoff .... Alabama's star QB and trio of wide receivers, along with their Heisman Trophy toting running back all decide to sit out the big game afraid they might get injured and it cost them millions in endorsement money, signing bonuses and lucrative pro contracts .... meanwhile Boise State routs a depleted Alabama squad 52 - 14 to claim the national championship  ....
