    I'll save some of my thoughts, because this isn't the appropriate place, but I'm 100% good with Day's approach. There will be some guardrails coming, and if we lose a few guys who want fat checks just to step on campus in the meantime, so be it.

    almost none of us would turn down huge offers, even if that wouldn't be the primary driving force.

    it's easy to be shortsighted and just look at the immediate returns

    but there's something to be said from making a good portion of it performance-based after you've help the team, or at least become a part of the team.

    it doesn't matter how perfectly you set it up, someone's going to be willing to pay some crazy amount that disrupts the flow of everything. and frankly Mike Hall Junior might be the best defensive lineman since Chase young and might not get matched in performance by either of the two special defensive ends. but because of the nature of his position he's never going to generate insane revenue. so what happens if you write a huge check to the next high schooler how do you reconcile that? especially if the check is going to a big time running back which is not a hard position to find, but easy to market. yet here's an actual all American that best case scenario you can land two to three more across a 10-year period if you recruit perfectly. meanwhile you can land a five-star running back almost every year and find scores of lower rated kids that play at that level because it's just not that hard of a position to scout.

    You made a lot of great comments, but going to play DL at Georgia is not a short sighted decision.

    absolutely not, that's an absolutely great decision. I'm strictly commenting on days approach.

    Yep Georgia is not Ole Miss suddenly buying people under Freeze etc. They can buy people and show them product on the field as well

    When LJ Sr. says you’re a 4-3 DE and you go to Georgia to be an OLB it is arguably a bad decision. See: Brenton Cox.

    I hear you, but he’s actually a great size for a OLB, and is playing the Jack position at a similar size to Sawyer

    It's incredible, he's going to haunt QBs at the next level. Not only an amazing first step, but the dude closes and gets home. Very much #1 on my wish list of remaining prospects, he's that good.
