Thought we had a thread on this guy but couldn't find it. OL Dominic Steward, who was a recruit we flipped from Troy, has been upgraded on 247 to a 4 star.

There should be a thread on him, or at least this should be in the recruiting thread. He's not a portal transfer, he's an early enrollee true Freshman. Surprised winwave wasn't all over this kid, his scouting reports are fun to read.

He doesn't appear to have his own thread in the recruiting forum. Don't know why. Others besides me will post about recruits and they put it in a general recruiting thread. I'm guessing he's in there. He's in the NSD 2024 Class thread from signing day.

Another article referring to NIL money, with exact numbers from anonymous recruits. Of the sample of 15 four and five star recruits, all but three are getting AT LEAST $100K a year.

Just a little investigation, 2 of the Top 10 Teams with Portal acquires are Oregon and Colorado, looks like we are getting guys they let go and replaced them in the Portal. Better than we use to get but semi rejects.

This kid deserves a whole lot more. This is one of the highest ranked OL recruits we've had. winwave, don't take this as a criticism, you should be flattered that your known for finding everything about our recruits and starting threads for each. This one slipped by me, as did the pretty highly rated (86) QB we signed, Kellen Tasby. Most of us were sidetracked with the bowl game, Christmas, coaching changes, etc.

Let's hope Dominic Steward becomes the next Bernard Robertson or Donnie Maggs.

I agree he looks like a good one. As noted above someone else posted him in a thread. A lot of times I do end up making a separate thread for them ( D- I have to note here that you have actually complained about me doing that and saying they should all just be in one thread) but as you said it was Christmas and Bowl season and it didn't get done. Oversight now corrected.

Yep. Just what I've been saying. Not a lot of the 11,305 players getting big money. 20% of those 5 and 4 stars sampled aren't getting it. They also say the claims about big money that others are making are greatly exaggerated. From the article:

But what’s real with NIL numbers and what isn’t?

You can go ahead and trash any thoughts that most recruits are getting paid millions annually to attend a school.

“People get paid to play,” Recruit 14 said. “But the numbers that you be hearing are outrageous. … People are just lying and pushing it past what it is.”
