Yet another advantage certainly pushed through for the P2/P4 and their money. Paying for flights, hotels, fancy dinners, etc... At this point they'll hire full-time employees who are in charge of purely running the official visits (somebody has to keep track of the recruit's favorite snacks and make sure there's a basket of it in the hotel room when they arrive, right?). Schools with smaller budgets won't be able to afford that.

Gift packs in hotels have been (temporarily?) banned. The person at Tulane that usually handles that said the NCAA put out a memo saying no gifts in hotel rooms. It sounded like it may not be a permanent decision but they were all told to stop doing it for now.

I mean… if a gift pack falls off a truck and happens to land near a recruit, that is still legal right?!!

That plan was perfectly legal for a lot of blue blood football and basketball programs for decades, before NIL even was thought of! 8)
