I'd guess the top corners will be the six I listed earlier in some combination: Rakestraw, Burdine, Green, Evans, Abrams-Draine and Shearin with Carnell next in line to make a push. The two Tulsa players came here to start and enhance their NFL stock. They'll be factors for playing time, clearly. There's more time to groom a guy like Carnell, but if he's one of the best in camp, he'll get a shot.
She didn't work with him very long in Knoxville. She left there in 2012, a year after he got there, and two years before he took the Vols to the Sweet 16.

I don't really keep score of who had what first. Pinkel announcing his retirement is probably up there.

Drinkwitz has been asked but hasn't shared that information. In July he said they'd get to 85 percent by the start of fall camp. At the start of camp, he indicated they're not there yet.
It just depends on each state's law. Some have more guardrails than others. Missouri's law is far less restrictive than some other laws. For the states without an NIL law, the NCAA rule still has some guardrails the athletes have to follow or they're subject to NCAA violations.
OK, folks. That's all the time we have today. We'll do this again next week.
