Many coaches across college football believe the sport now has a huge transfer portal problem, and Mike Gundy has an idea that he thinks could help resolve it.
Gundy spoke with reporters earlier this week about the issues he sees with the transfer portal. He proposed the idea of having high school recruits sign “contractual scholarships” where both the player and school commit to one another for a certain length of time.
“Until we get contractual scholarships in high school recruiting the portal is never going to settle down,” Gundy said, as transcribed by Zach Barnett of FootballScoop.com. “For example, young men should be able to sign a one-, two-, three- or four-year scholarship. That’s their choice. Whatever they sign, that’s what they’re committed to. That’s what we’re going to now. That’s the only way that we are going to have a chance to manage rosters."
