This is risk management for both parties.
From the perspective of Adidas: If Hoey were to go to college and have a great career, Adidas wouldn’t have a shot at signing him. They figure it’s better to sign him now and have him locked in than to wait and see what happens and risk losing him.
From Hoey’s perspective: There is a chance that Hoey goes to college and fails to improve or gets injured. In that case, his market value goes to zero. Better to make the money now while it’s a sure thing than to gamble on what will happen over the next four years.
Except that he could go to college somewhere for free and be all set afterwards to get a job, where now, if he fails, he may not have even made enough profit to cover the cost of a full college education.
Except no one gets full scholarships anymore. Can anyone confirm what programs give full scholarships? Oregon doesn’t.
You can get full scholarships at a lot of Universities...might not be Oregon, but could be other places. I ran D1 in school and know others at multiple schools that got full rides...
