The $1000 can slide. But a years worth of Chick-Fil-A? Is that 52 coupon cards? Is that a meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a year? How do Sunday’s work out? So many questions so few answers.
Props to BT Potter for scoring 304 points in 4 years as an all around kicker for his high school, but he may be in some serious trouble here. Just before the 2017 season, news broke that Sophomore kicker at UCF would be committing NCAA violations by monetizing his YouTube channel. But here, we have Chick-Fil-A paying a college bound athlete in the broad daylight and nothing is done. Chick-Fil-A is clearly in making sure Clemson gets their top recruits. The #1 nationally ranked kicker may be the first of many that the the Anderson Chick-fil-A recruiting pipeline has brought to Clemson, who knows how many there could have been. If a small blog site like The Last Snap can catch this, imagine what the NCAA nerds can do with their investigations unit.
