ron del duca Sports Agent Ron Del Duca Talks About Recruiting Athletes

Ron Del Duca joined Seibel and Starkey to discuss the recent information coming out about college athletes who accepted gifts and money from athletes.  Ron said he couldn’t be less surprised to hear this information and that his already low opinion of agents has actually gotten lower.

Agents have been paying players for a long time now, and Ron says as an agent, there’s nothing you can do about it.  Ron actually avoids players that he knows will want money and gifts.

Ron believes the states should make it a felony for agents who give players money and ruin their eligibility and education because of it, otherwise nobody will follow the rules and guidelines set up to prevent such activity from happening.
