My whole point is that sometimes the best recruiting job you can do is recruiting a player to stay another year.
I also say that the player would be asked to take all the risk in coming back versus taking an early exit.
After three years, everyone knows the deal.....coaches and players. Some understand that college is the end of the line, but others struggle to face that reality. As much as coaches try, some just don't want to hear it. Why else do so many leave early and end up either not getting drafted or go in the last couple of rounds. I think most coaches will talk to players honestly about their pro potential. But in the end, it's on the players.
