How can this happen with KeitOn on the staff reassuring him of future greatness?

This is not good. But Parker did commit before AAU circuit games. Guessing maybe some NIL stuff in play. But it sucks that OSU hasn't announced its NIL yet that we keep hearing about. It would suck more if we are actually losing recruits because of that.

recruiting interference with NIL stuff is actually illegal... if it did happen, I hope somebody goes down hard for it, especially since the NCAA just re-emphasized the hands-off recruiting stance.

yeah... but we just signed 3 guys to his position, what did they expect would happen, plus everybody else on the team that also plays that position.

I think those recent portal signees are one and done with eligibility, so it would not affect Friedrichsen, competition-wise, as a 2023 signee.

He may have seen the video on YouTube of the other two new signees and worries about playing time or heard an NIL pitch. If he's uncomfortable for any reason, better it happens now. Maybe he's heard rumors on Avery returning too, which would be great.
