Web Sites Present New Dynamic in Recruiting
Colleagues Steve Yanda and Eric Prisbell have a good story in today's paper about how Web sites are changing recruiting. The problem? There is no way to regulate - for recruits, colleges or the NCAA -- these sites. Sure, a school could decline to provide credentials for home games, but much of the time it is to their advantage to have these sites on the recruiting trail. Many Rivals and Scout sites exist primarily because the NCAA will not allow schools to publish or distribute this material; so schools simply "partner" with the Web sites, whose operators can make hundreds of thousands of dollars each off the information.
