This week, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit appeared on The Pat McAfee Show to discuss Jaden Rashada's lawsuit against Florida head coach Billy Napier over an alleged failed $13.85 million NIL deal. Per Athlon Sports:
quote:

"This is like uncharted waters," Herbstreit said. "When Quinn Ewers left Ohio State, I think a lot of us thought, 'Well, I guess he didn't honor his commitment, so he didn't get his money.' I have no idea if these are contracts signed or if these are promises. I really never know if the players are at fault or if the university."

The question now is, what will happen across college football if Rashada wins this lawsuit? Herbstreit thinks that could open up more cases like it.

"If he wins, that could open up the floodgates for sure," Herbstreit said. "To see others who will eventually try to do the same thing. I'm floored that a high school quarterback was promised $13.8 million. What the hell has happened to college football? It's one thing if Bryce Young, as an established star at Alabama, can create that kind of money or Caleb Williams, but to bribe a high school player, allegedly. If they did it, that's sad where we are at in the sport."

It was the national media that started all this crap. Jay Bilas led the way

I'll guess there are just not enough precedence nor established rules of play, so this case will likely be dismissed.

It will come down to contract law and just how this deal was fashioned.
