We saw this with Wes Fritz in a sense when he knew he was leaving for Houston. These coaches start to follow other teams players on social media and/or like their posts on Instagram at some point during the season. This allows the players to know there’s interest from another school. The player then once in the portal begins talks with the coach that recently followed them on Twitter (X) or liked their post on other social media apps. And so it begins. There’s a entire list of ways tampering has been happening in this article that is just one of many.

You can follow a kid on Instagram, you can like his stuff. You know if he’s liking your stuff back that he likes you, or if you follow him on Twitter and he follows you back — the kid is not dumb, that’s happening for a reason. Back a few years ago when people weren’t tampering as much, that’s the way you did it — hey, he followed me back! This could happen. Then sometimes the kids will just DM you and tell you they’re going in. I think there are some schools that straight up just call the kid, text them, talk to them. It’s reckless.
Greedy parents want NIL money also.
There are absolutely kids going into the portal that don’t want to go into the portal, but the parents orchestrate it. And a big thing now is (collectives giving) a separate NIL stipend for parents to go to the games. Because that gets expensive. You can get a situation where the player gets a certain amount of money, but the parents take a big chunk out of it, so now it’s a big thing for the parents to get a separate NIL stipend. And that’s a big thing for the kids, because the parents are a big influencer.

No need for a new thread. This is the same stuff that was in lantern's post with the athletic article.

He’ll probably win if it was in writing.
