    Do other teams do this or is it an innovation? In any case it sounds like a valuable process for players aspiring to a professional career.

    Many have various life skills classes that are directed at athletes. WVU has had such classes for many years. But in terms of taking the student-athletes on the road to meet various others, that’s above and beyond what I’ve heard anyone has done before. Great idea, in my opinion

    Interesting that they took only the 9. This would be a great thing to put some of the underclassmen thru every year. Maybe not to the extent of buying them clothes…. don’t think the NCAA would allow that ….. but bringing in advisers to talk about next steps for them even in the event that they don’t make it to an NFL payday.

    This would be especially helpful to almost every BB player as most of these kids go on to play overseas for a few years. This could be huge for them.
