Just saw an article where a former foundation head in Louisiana was sentenced to 33 months in prison for money laundering, wire fraud etc. He was apparently a very careless bagman as $167,000 of his embezzlement was directed to the father of former LSU OL Vadal Alexander who started there from 2012-2015. Alexander was a 4 star recruit and rated 167 by ESPN coming out of high school. So we now know that the market price of a player in that range is $167k.
Not surprising, lots of rumors of SEC schools paying players among other things
Don't kid yourself thinking this is limited to the SEC.
