Thoughts? Personally I think it's a bad choice. Could've signed with Nike and joined BTC or OTC most likely.
Imagine being 21 and competing against 18 year olds. Ches and futs were in the same age bracket.
Imagine running Footlocker and having to deal with Lukus one year and then Ches the next year.
Have a friend in the business and I would agree. However, out of curiosity, what would you guess he signed for? Buddy thought $20,000 + travel + equipment + big bonuses only if he makes National teams.

I believe the vast majority of letsrun messageboarders are very mistaken as to the recruitment of post-collegiate distance runners. The overwhelming majority of the very few that are even recruited at all almost exclusively have one company/group interested in them. So that offer is both their best and only option.
What inconsistencies are you referring to?

A lot of inconsistency in the group as a result of a young self proclaimed coach. Futsum probably needs stronger more experienced direction.
Wish him the best but don't look for great things.
