Abstract:

The pecuniary rewards associated with acquiring premium college athletes induce schools to lower academic standards for incoming players. This study empirically examines the incentive for Division I-A schools, those competing at the highest level of athletics in the USA, to relax admission standards for college football players. Granting admissions to players with lower academic profiles enlarges a team's recruiting pool so that it acquires a greater number of premium players, which, in turn, increases revenues for the school.
