“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

Those aren't (technically) commercials, they're (unpaid) promotions.

Very few players transfer. Some who try face the wrath of vindictive (and well paid) coaches.

I also like David Roth's take:

As a follow-up, if current players were allowed (even limited) marketing rights, there wouldn't be so many awful commericals starring coaches during the tournament.

It's not a fallacy at all. College basketball players are generating enormous revenue and are economically limited in a number of ways: sharp restrictions on transfers, forbidden from marketing their image, etc. The last one is particularly important, because many college athletes have huge local profiles. For example, after the championship game last year, Spike would have been a prime candidate for local marketing.
The NCAA is a bizarre form of anti-worker socialism.

I glanced at his twitter. While tweeting at recruits is always creepy, professionals who use their full names tweeting at recruits is particularly bad.
https://twitter.com/BillBiddle1 is "Executive Director of the Ferguson Center for the Arts" but spends all his spare time tweeting at high schoolers.

I agree - I posted the fine print because I no longer live in the area, but it makes sense to restrict it to local fans (though the time-frame is quite narrow).
