Portal allows the athlete to open talks without needing permission from his school. However, the school then gets the option to pull his scholarship at the end of the current term. So it's not completely without risk for the athlete. I don't imagine OSU would stiff him, but entering the portal can't be unsubstantial in the eyes of his coaches.
