This doesn't take into account that players also have plans.

So they know going in as well 5 to play 4. Some plan on one and done, others plan to redshirt out of the gate and are planning on 5. Players like Huff and Hauser didn't plan on 6 and most like them won't want 6 - they need to start their pro earnings clock or they are costing themselves more than 1 more year of grad school would cost. There will be exceptions like Richard Burney.

Plus this doesn't consider the transfer market that is in the neighborhood of 1K per year lately. The extra year doesn't transfer over. And transfers likely will get immediate eligibility in the future on their first transfer. The reason all the movement exists already is that players want to play ... and that won't change.
