Hey Guys, this young man seems like a very quality person, with good intelligence, very smart, will to learn and know that he has alot to learn. Talks about technique. Seems that resembles another OL that has great technique and intelligence and his name is Lane Johnson.
I will take this kid who is humble, intelligent, and will to learn and work over kids only half willing to work, think that they are entitled, etc.
Hope we get him. He will be an asset to the team and the University.
Yes, the major perk for the recruited Ivy League athlete is that he gets some preferential treatment at the admissions office. Yes, they have great financial aid packages at the Ivys because the schools have very substantial endowments.
Okay, so an athlete gets free tuition and books at an Ivy League school. What about room and board? Do they get a free room in an athletic dorm? Is there a training table where they get a balanced diet? Do they get some pocket money for incidental expenses? Do the athletic facilities at an Ivy League school match what OU provides to the football players? I doubt it.
