OTish: Oversigning In Basketball
But it depends on where the kid got his "odd jobs" and how much money they paid him. For example, if he got paid 25K to "work" for T Boone Pickens, it would raise a few eyebrows. If he worked in a tipped position at Southern Hills and someone let what he would be doing this year "slip," I'm sure the members would have been quite generous.
Sidorakis' sacrifice is a great story, but to me it raises more red flags about where he got his money than anything else.
I still don't understand how you can just oversign. There are x amount of scholarships. Except commitments until x scholarships are full. What circumstance can justify taking more than what you have?
I wanna know what kinda jobs he's been getting every summer to save enough to pay for all his schooling. I need to give him a call.
