Sounds like spyre is going to have to overpay to land this one since UK is so desperate and made a big NIL play. Curious if they will.
i'm sure it would be viewed as overpaying. but i just go back to what does the staff value him at? if he's one of the "have to haves" in this class, then his value is what it is. outside looking it, it will be perceived as overpaying. can't worry about that though.

That’s where I think it helps level things up…. Not so much this guy but the big schools still get the majority of the big names but the second tier nplayers they take will be overpaid by other schools to get those guys.

Basilio reporting that Danny White has told the coaches they cannot speak with or interact at all with Spyre. Not great timing I would say...
Makes sense as to why we are losing recruits that we led for. Tennessee back to playing checkers while the heavy hitters are playing chess.

IMO this is a very similar situation to Tate. Conyer would prefer to be a Vol, but UK has made a large offer that has caused him to reconsider. I don't *think* Tennessee will have to match dollar for dollar but probably will need to get close.

Based on what RC and AP have both independently said, that door is very open. I expect us to close this out...

So other schools are still making NIL offers in recruiting but we aren’t. If it’s a rule then Kentucky and many others in violation. If it isn’t no way in Haiti we are going to not be doing it too. I don’t buy this bull crap at all. I have seen no NCAA rule come out and other schools are clearly making deals to recruits. GBO!

This is exactly what happened. UK is overpaying big time because they are struggling so much with this class. This comes down to whether we want to overpay or not.
