Agree that this situation should be rare, but what if someone like Crawford could get a million a year for 3 years? That would be enough to take away the risk of falling in the draft for a player likely to get slot which is below 4 million.
I think most college NIL deals will be in the hundreds of thousands and might not be enough to entice a first round pick to skip the draft. $100K a year might make a Logan O'Hoppe go to college though.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out and I imagine there will be straight up examples of boosters buying out a top HS pick. In football you can't play for 3 years so it is more an issue for college seniors. In baseball though it will be a new part of the signing equation where HS players simply have more leverage. The college decision is a little more attractive now.
