I like a player going back to school for further athletic development. But, doesn't a player take a risk going back to school? Financially speaking?
Isn't an athlete with god given talent better off signing a pro contract right away and reap the financial benefits of it?
If a player had a career ending injury in college... wouldn't he be screwed? Yes he would be able to finish out his degree, but to me, it seems safer to "cash in" on your talents immediately.
If it didn't work out professionally or you got hurt in the pros, you could easily just finish out your degree considering you have $500K + in your bank account.
