Big time programs also pander to 5 star players like Les Brains did with Russell Shepard. Mack was upfront when he said he would be a WR at Texas and Les said that he could play QB. Well, Shepard ended up playing what Mack said he would anyways at LSU.
They also oversign players and break promises honoring their scholarships. Nick Saban, Lane Kiffin, and Les are notorious for doing that.
If the writer considers being honest with a player, fulfilling the scholarship, and not letting entitled HS 5 stars hold their programs hostage at the expense of the players already on campus is not befitting of a big time program, well then let us be bush league all the way.
