Regarding Sig's initial comment: adidas paid a 3rd party to get All American Brian Bowan for $100,000. No wonder it was a surprise commitment for them. That kid better hope he's good enough to land on an NBA team this coming draft.
I don't recall USC, Oklahoma St, Auburn, or Arizona ever being contracted with Adidas, but those assistant coaches probably used that to their advantage to be on the take.

Auburn has been with Under Armor since 2006 and wore Russell before that. The others have been with Nike for as long as I can remember.
