ALMDALE, Calif. -- The summer night Bill Harrington realized he had become a pariah here in his hometown, he was 85 miles down the road, watching one of the most dazzling prospects scouts could recall, who also happened to be his son.
What an idiot. Most kids who don't sign in the draft at least take a schollie offer to go to college so they have some leverage. I can understand him getting burned once, but the second time, he was still getting over a million dollar offer, and he still walked. For a kid who has no money, it seems like the dumbest thing he could do.
The kid was 18 and probably didnt even have 1000 bucks in his bank account...he had no idea what was going on. They should have done some research on who they were hiring...
also, since he hired an agent, he probably couldnt play college ball...even if he wanted to at that point. If im not mistaken, some no. 1 draft pick (or top 5 atleast), did the same thing a few years back where they went and played independent ball instead of signing???
