Oklahoma State’s Boynton Concerned With Lack of Consequences for Tampering

The new name, image and likeness policy in college sports has created a chaotic world of recruiting, especially when it comes to transfers. Certain programs have been able to take advantage of the rule, while others are still trying to get their footing.

While speaking with Sports Illustrated’s Jason Jordan, Oklahoma State men’s basketball coach Mike Boynton explained that as long as there aren’t any punishments to combat tampering in the transfer window, no one will follow the rules.

“A rule is only a rule if there’s a consequence,” he said. “If there is no consequence, you’re really just making a suggestion, you’re hoping that somebody follows the suggestion. People have been walking about tampering for a long time, I don’t know if I know of an instance where someone was punished for ‘tampering.’”
