"Income redistribution" for college football isn't the answer

When a 5 star DB kid gets ready to sign his LOI with Bama, he knows there's 5 other 5 star DBs signing with him, and there are 5 more 5 star DBs in the class above, and 5 more in the class above that. But he wants to play at Bama and compete. Are you punishing Bama for their success and "income redistributing" him to Kentucky because they're entitled to it?

I think there are other things that may better than placing limits:

1) Allow one time transfer with immediate eligibility to any school, in any conference. If kid doesn't see playing time in his future he can go anywhere and play. If he wants to transfer again, then he has to follow established rues around sitting out one year, grad transfer eligibility, etc.

2) Facilitate schools like Coastal Carolina, Cincinnati, BYU, to play top 15 programs. For example, playing Vanderbilt doesn't really count as SEC. They have to play high end programs. Same goes for games vs .the other Power 5 conferences.

3) Most obvious, expand the playoffs to 8 teams. Take Power 5 winners and 3 at large, but those aren't reserved for Group of 5 teams. They can come from same conference, or even the same division in the same conference. Likely to be mismatches but at least there's a chance.
