A Rivals.com story about Dalonte Hill's $400,000+ salary currently adorns the front page of Yahoo.com. Not Yahoo! Sports, but Yahoo!'s main page. I know because I just checked my email in class.
I'm not really sure what took them so long to pick up on this. The story notes that the contract became available in May, so it only took a major sports service about five months to discern that Hill makes a whole lot of money. Like, more than some three-man coaching staffs.
Is it money well-spent? In my opinion, yes. Hill delivered Michael Beasley to Manhattan, and next year it appears he will deliver Wally Judge and Rodney McGruder as well. That's a lot of talent, and we can't afford to let that type of recruiter get away from Manhattan.
