It’s an overall win at places like OSU - the portal allows us to (temporarily) stockpile talent

since the kids know that even if they don’t win the job they will be able to find a spot elsewhere later. So having a 5-star or three already on the roster is less of a deterrent. Without the portal I really doubt we’d have all 4 of these guys to start with. It’s kind of a win-win for both program and players. The only potential downside is locker room disruption or coaches mishandling the talent/personalities - which to this point hasn’t been an issue for us.
