WSJ Article about Alumni Collectives

This cites the Nijel Pack recruiting debacle (at least from a Boilermaker's point of view). It does not mention how the transfer portal interacts with NIL (a point well-made in the Hummel podcast). Also, relative to that podcast, it fails to mention the fees collected by intermediaries involved in this cottage industry (e.g., rough math is that the KU collective is making 30% margin off of the players in that example).

Nothing Earth-shattering here, but this whole phenomenon is gaining a broader audience and is may be getting more NCAA attention as this article parrots the forthcoming NCAA guidelines mentioned in other FanPosts.
