Alabama football head coach Nick Saban Wednesday night accused Texas A&M of using name, image and likeness (NIL) deals to effectively buy players.

While speaking at an event, he said, “We were second in recruiting last year. A&M was first. A&M bought every player on their team. Made a deal for name, image and likeness. We didn’t buy one player.”

Many in college sports have expressed concern that NIL deals are being used as recruiting inducements and what amounts to pay-for-play.
