Besides attention, what incentive does a guy like Nkimdiche or Fournette (next year) get for announcing at an all star game? Is there a monitary incentive or apparel incentive for the players?
There is an ego incentive.
it is an NCAA violation for any of the above you mentioned. there can be nothing exchanged hands for a recruit to do anything. This is purely the attention garnered by these high profile recruits ending the lengthy process known as their recruitment. This has become common practice but is nothing more than the current norm... Hope this helps some....
All about being on TV and because it is now tradition.
I personally hate it. Not so much for the kids but for the pressure put on the kids by the networks, especially ESPN. I've also been one that has always believed that the Brent Calloway drama of committing to Auburn at the Army game while being commited to Bama ,all while against the wishes of his family, was staged by NBC to create buzz.
Some do it for the ego and attention. Some do it because it makes it a little more special and something they will always remember having their family and friends with them on the national TV stage.
Then some do it for a combination of the two.
I will say that in Fournette's case, it will not be because he needs the attention or to boost his ego. He isn't that type of kid at all.
