I go a different way. I think they should give college players a choice: scholarship or (modest) salary. Most would take the money, which is fine by me. Frees up scholarships for kids who want to go to college to learn but can't afford it, and lets players be honest about what they're after. Some (the smart ones) will want that free education to get them through life after football, which arrives all too soon for too many pro athletes. Those guys/gals absolutely deserve a scholarship. I think a scholarship used to bring in a one and done athlete, while it probably does a lot for a university's marketing and bottom line, is a wasted opportunity to let a kid who needs help go to college.
