I know several walk ones at Alabama. Most just wanted to be part of the team, happy to do scout team and get the perks - free tutors, great food, great free clothes, and good seats for their family at home games. Saban appreciates them, and I’ve taught several in MED school. But way more are like del rio. Football at Alabama and in Alabama is a multi billion $ business. The players are parts.
