Was It Worth It?

Last week, colleague Eli Saslow wrote a story about Gonzaga OL A.J. Francis and how Francis thought it was worthwhile to spend $1,000 to travel to a combine in San Antonio.

Francis, who already held some scholarship offers, returned and last week committed to Maryland -- one of the schools that already have offered a scholarship. In today's paper Francis said he was contacted by some of the dream schools he hoped to be recruited by, but was disappointed they hadn't been contacted by them sooner.

Not to pick on the kid, but sounds pretty conflicting, doesn't it? I know there are many who believes combines are beneficial, but I wonder if folks think it is necessary to travel around the country for this sort of thing.
