You know they'd find a way around it. It's not like Coach O is going to be calling a kid like Lawrence on the phone. They'd find ways to keep there from being direct ties to the schools. Bet you'd start finding "agents" out there trying to become the intermediary between players and "bagmen". Even if they get caught, they have no ties to the school and the NCAA can't do much about it. In fact, with the new regulations allowing athletes to profit from their likeness, would it technically be against the NCAA rules if a Bama booster went to an athlete like Lawrence as said, if you lived in Tuscaloosa, I'd be willing to pay you $2 million dollars to be in my auto dealership TV ads? Not a direct offer, but just a statement but clearly an implied offer. I'm not sure it would. It's a totally different situation from recruiting because nobody really knows who these blue chip recruits are coming out of HS. But a kid like Lawrence is very well recognized and could command a major endorsement deal on his own.
