I understand your feelings, but I agree that this is a personal and business decision that the kid absolutely has the right to make. He has already earned his future next step, and the University is ok with it, so why take unnecessary chances with your potential future? If he gets hurt in high school, what happens to his potential NIL money? Can't blame him or any other kid who has the ability to make this decision. Free enterprise at it's best/worst made this bed. It will be interesting how the high school treats the colleges who might encourage this decision on other recruits. This could be an emerging recruiting thicket.Man, I'm sorry, but I couldn't disagree more with your thought analysis on Blue skipping his "senior" year of HS. I have zero clue what's been said about him on message boards...as if that holds any water to begin with. However, a 17 yr old skipping out for his "future NFL" career is laughable at best. Sure, his choice and that's the country/society we live in...but come on, stop making this sound like it's no big deal. You brought up Golf of all sports too???????? Let me ask you this, what if it's a Sophomore next...or a freshman saying the same thing? Hope you have the same thoughts. Sure, we all hope it works out best for the kid, but to think this is a reasonable decision is bizarre to me.
