I thought it was interesting that recruits were brought up on here with them asking for numbers. What do you guys think about how they are handling It?

It happens more than many people think. And I certainly wouldn't want to lose out on a good recruit because of it.
I still would favor allowing 6-9 digits back on jerseys, which works in the NBA. If that's not enough, then I'd be OK with bringing numbers out of retirement as mentioned in the article, with a patch honoring the original honoree.
