Former Heisman winner Danny Wuerffel supports NIL, but says recruiting impact 'seems dicey'

a man in a baseball game: Emmitt: You know, I really don't look back and reflect like that, to be honest with you, because it's kind of hard for me to do that because of some of the things that you just mentioned. It worked out perfectly for me. I became the all-time leading rusher. I played with the team that I always wanted to play for as a child, which was the Dallas Cowboys. And I won three Super Bowls with some great, great teammates.  And if I would've stayed my senior year, I probably would not have had the chance to be drafted by the Cowboys or, if I would have won a Heisman, I probably would've went in the top five picks and probably would've went to a lesser team. So there's a lot of what-ifs, and so we can play the what-if game as long as we want to, and still come up with the same answer. The what-if never happened. What did happen is reality. So that part we can solidify, but everything else is just speculative. © USA TODAY Sports Emmitt: You know, I really don't look back and reflect like that, to be honest with you, because it's kind of hard for me to do that because of some of the things that you just mentioned.
