Default Texas A&M WR Ricky Seals-Jones’ dad says he was offered $600K for a commitment

Looks like aTm may have paid a nice little price tag for that lofty recruiting class...

Quote:
Seals-Jones’ father, Chester Jones, claims “Ricky was offered $300,000 in cash, use of a luxury suite during football season, eight season tickets and $1,000 per month for Ricky and $500 for the family to commit to a “top 20 program.”

“Oh, it was higher than that,” Chester Jones said. “It was a lot higher than that.”

“Chester Jones said the offers grew as high as $600,000 for his son’s signature on a national letter of intent – one SEC school and one ACC school said they’d double any offer – but he declined them all out of principle and the fear of inevitably getting caught,

Uhhhhhhhhh

Sounds fishy that he would come out and say they were offered but didn't take it.

What is there to stop an over zealous fan who is wealthy from offering money to a player for a commitment to their favorite team ?

[quote=treys1986;3881081]Wonder who the ACC school was?[/QUOTE/]


Which schools recruit Texas, or have contacts there?
Clemson - Chad Morris is from Texas
UNC - Fedora is from Texas


I don't know if FSU or Miami recruits there.

Those are the four I would suspect. I once saw a FB post in which Corey Miller(UT) got into an argument with a UNC fan, and Miller accused UNC of offering to pay him to play for them.

Probabaly UNC, Miami, or Clemson...FSU doesn't need to do that, and the other schools just don't care.

Seems like the NCAA should investigate just to make sure.

I think the dude's dad is a Texas fan. $600k for a commitment is crazy. Auburn only paid ~$200K for Cam and he was a QB. Granted that was only one year, but they basically bought a National Title.. Is an ATH going to win you a National Championship?

It does seem a bit high, but I'm not sure what the going rate for a player is these days. Maybe there's an Auburn fan around that can help us out?

They could get an nfl free agent for that and just change his name. He's just a wide receiver.

I notice that they say Top 20 and not top 25, 10, or 5. That narrows it down a bit, I think. Looking at the final rankings from last season, I would guess Oklahoma was the "top 20" offer.
