Not directly UH related, bu a good article on the July recruiting period and how organizers are gouging coaches to watch players. NCAA won’t take a stand on this due to the fear of lawsuits.
The only people who can stop the ‘Packet Racket’ are college coaches
Coaches share stories of the exorbitant amounts of cash they’ve spent to watch recruits each July
Let’s tackle the first question first because the answer to that one seems simple, and it’s this: the NCAA is hesitant, I’m told, to pass legislation that would in essence limit what private businessmen can make because it would likely lead to lawsuits it might lose. That’s the long and short of it. In other words, if the college coaches who think the system is ridiculous genuinely want to change it, basically, it’s up to them. They’d have to take a stand and, at the highest levels of the sport, make it clear that charging $300 or $400 or even $1,000 just to enter a gym to watch high school prospects is unacceptable. They’d have to show there’s no longer a market for those prices.
