Bode Wilde no longer coming to Michigan

Per Bob McKenzie, Wilde will probably end up in juniors (OHL) or some other non-school path.

I don't know what the OHL pays, but I'm guessing it's less than free tuition + room and board at a works class university like Michigan. Plus he gets to develop under a program that actually gives a shit about him as a person instead of as a piece of property.

Yeah except that is not how these things worth. If he believes in his skill he won't be in college for 4 years to get a degree. Two years of classes at Michigan carries relatively little value. So the tuition room and board is really like an investment that only starts vesting after 4 years when he only plans to be at his next job for 1 or 2. When you factor in the additional time commitments and restrictions of being an NCAA athlete and I don't blame any prospective early entry candidate for picking the OHL.

Sucks. Hopefully Hughes comes back so it won’t hurt too much. Just hate that it happens so late and you can’t really replace him in the class but it is what it is.
