College Baseball Portal 2022

Miller reassigned as a non-coaching staff member/assistant. This opens up the option for Pierce to hire two paid assistants and a volunteer assistant. Still wondering who would come to UT as assistants with the way the program appears to be right now. To me, it just seems like an assistant would likely think twice accepting a position under Pierce with how these last two weeks have shaken out. Just my 2¢. 
 

Also: FR RHP Jack Arthur has entered the portal tonight. He saw no action this season for Texas

Some think CDC is calling the shots. I hope not because Pierce needs to sink or swim with his own hires.

I tend to think that CDC is aware, and possibly making suggestions, but I don’t believe he is directing the moves. He is letting DP make the decisions that DP feels are necessary. Again, just my opinion here.

The program has been to back to back College World Series.  Something tells me that purse strings for assistants have been opened.  He brought over his guys when he came.  Pierce may be trying to follow Sark's lead and hire the best recruiters and coaches.

A little off-topic but I assume baseball players can also get NIL money. That would mean scholarship limits are meaningless.

Yes, they can. 

I do think it lessens to difficulty surrounding scholarship limits but that limitation still remains. Scholarships are means for the school to directly contribute funds to the players but they can not do so via NIL.

There is the Occupy Left Field collective that works to get all the guys on the squad NIL money.

My point is if players are getting NIL money they don’t really need scholarship money. But maybe they can’t get NIL money unless they are on scholarship?

I hear ya on your first point. Could apply that concept to any sport really if you have enough money. Imagine the football team have 30 scholarship quality players as "walk-ons" who just so happen to get 6 figure NIL deals.

All athletes can get NIL deals regardless of scholarship. Heck, the previous rules prevented athletes from making money off of their Name, Image and Likeness so its quite the opposite.
