Talked with Jalen Hooks HS coach this morning. Informed me that Hooks is transferring to Donda Prep in California. Kanye West’s new school.

He said that Robert Dillingham is heading out there as well. Top 10 prospect that was at Combine Academy with Epps.
West designs sneakers for Adidas. Multiple year, multiple million dollar contract. I can not see this as a good thing.

Had not considered the Adidas connection. All I can say is...

Can't speak for...could have meant, his classes at Donda U being accepted by the NCAA. Don't think he is speaking about Hooks in any way....jmo.
Yes, I am speaking about Donda Academy. I'm hoping that it doesn't cause eligibility issues for anyone. If Hooks goes there, it's my concern that may happen to him.

I am offended. Very offended. /s

I was also unclear on what I was saying. Just hoping Hooks, or any other kid doesn't, get caught up in eligibility issues when going to college because Donda Academy doesn't have its stuff together.
Typical kanye bs

I think the comcern is that Kanye would allow easy access to Adidas reps, who would steer the players to Adidas schools. We are a Nike school. Given Adidas' past indiscretions, and the fact that this is probably ok given NIL, I don't think it's a completely unwarranted concern.
Gotcha. Personally, I think that stuff is overblown

Just remeber what happened to Emmanuel Muiday and SMU. Could very easily be a similar situation with Donda.

Just curious, did you ever read the FBI transcript tape between the Adidas rep, Bill Self and Curtis Townsend? There is only one way an intelligent person could interpret that conversation.
