ARLINGTON — The transfer portal.
The ability to monetize through Name, Image and Likeness.
The world event that led to an extra year of eligibility for all.
The draw of life-changing money in the NFL.
The trend of sitting out postseasons to prepare for the draft.
The storylines of recruiting — committing, de-committing, and, of course, committing again … and possibly again.
