They should have the option of getting a free education but it shouldn't be mandatory.
Just my two cents.
It should be mandatory that they are students imo...if they are going to play for the school...
paying them to play would make it a professional football league, that just isn't an option I don't think...they have the option of skipping school and walking onto the NFL if they want, but it is unlikely they will get taken as seriously...there have been a few successful walk ons...
you are right in that it does happen all over the country though...Cam is far from the first to get paid for college ball...he won't be the last either...
Infact it almost like it so common that Cam's father just thought it was cool to talk about it openly...lol
