I agree with this logic. Jose returning to school to improve his draft chances does not make sense. I believe his decision right now is about what he wants to do for the next 3-5 years. Giving up dreams is never easy. The only logic to returning to GT is to get a graduate degree (on the house) and move on with life.
I wonder if the new Name, Image, Likeness law will have any effect on his decision. He is the type of guy that I would definitely try to support with my wallet if he tried to do some sort of marketing/merch deal. Will be interesting to see where those things go. For example, I wonder if he could just start a GoFundMe and say, if I raise 100k, I will come back to Tech. Interesting times ahead with that for sure.
