9th grader offered scholarship…

to study, errr…, play football at the University of South Carolina. If coach Spurrier is there in four years time (he’s currently 64 years old) I’ll be surprised. The recruiting game is unravelling, folks! Al Roth would be amused. Ironically former SC PhD student (and former basketball player) Scott Kelly studied recruiting in NCAA basketball from a Rothian perspective, and has had discussions with the coaches’ association on adopting market design principles to reduce the inefficiencies spawned by the recruiting process. Everyone one would be much better off, I think, if college coaches spent more time with players on the practice field, instead of hitting the road to recruit 9th and 10th graders.
