First of all in my opinion I love how informative WD is and I will always trust and respect your opinion and never want to come off the other way.
Second, lets just relax here for a second on his ability and the possibility of the Father wanting to be compensated or even the possibility that the Father wants a job from wherever his kid goes to school (which is what I am hearing in the quieter corners of the gyms).
Third, Lets look at the G League which has stated that it "Will not look at or recruit any player that is already committed to a college program". Therefore a decomitment would open him up to the possibility of being recruited by the G League
And lastly, this Kid is older, he is being coached by his Father, and there is no doubt he has the ability to get paid to play by the next level and with that being said I personally have always felt that he will not wear an ASU jersey because of the unfortunate unseedyness that is now being played out in court and the eventuality that money always wins in these situations.
Now I can only assume that there has been conversations from others about job opportunity for the Dad, duffel bags full of cash being offered by others and in turn denied but definitely thought about (who wouldn't to be fair) and now you have a legitimate G League sniffing around with not only money but the opportunity to train in certain NBA facilities etc. and on top of that you have New Balance and Puma that are trying to get these kids under contract while they are in high school (especially the prep kids) and telling them to just take their money, sit a year in their training facilities and all the while gambling on them to be the next best thing!
I personally feel that this is going to turn into a dark age for College Ball because people will no longer cheat, they will just offer a kid a million bucks to sit out a year after high school, train in a gym with 19 other top players and than IF they are drafted in the lottery they than give them a bigger contract to wear their shoes and gear. And IF they are not lottery players or even drafted they can try their luck overseas under the same pretenses but all the while they picked up a million dollars the day after they graduated high school (pretty good deal if you ask me!)
Just a few thoughts and ramblings....
