A report by ESPN.com outlined both considerations, quoting Alabama coach Nick Saban as cautioning his juniors that a work stoppage could hinder development, and an unnamed "prominent sports agent" saying, "I tell them, 'You need to get into the system as quickly as possible. You'll need to get to the second contract as soon as you can.' "
Aldon Smith said Monday that he didn't think a potential work stoppage would sway him one way or another but added, "Everybody probably thinks differently." As for his own considerations, he said, "Most definitely, I want to see what the feedback is and kind of weigh my options."
MU coach Gary Pinkel shrugged off the broader question about the work stoppage and defaulted to his long-held philosophy.
"I love these kids, and I want them to do what's best for them," he said, adding that anyone expected to be a first-round pick should consider going unless they don't feel ready. "I don't spend any time thinking about it. Whatever (the advisory board says), it is. And if guys need to leave for whatever reason, they need to leave (and) we move 'em over and move 'em up and keep on going."
