One of the original purposes of the portal was for players to find a school to get more playing time. But now it’s being used to get better NIL deals.
More than 1,200 FBS scholarship players have entered the portal since December 5th. The problem with this is some of these players will not find new schools.
There was some real scrambling last season for a few USC players who could not find new schools. And it’s only going to get more difficult.
