It would make sense of what was said later by the scout. Ballard asked if he liked him and the scout he liked him but didn’t like what they would have to give up to get him. They could totally be talking about moving up to get Love. Ballard could be on board and looking for feedback from his scouts.
I could see that. If the rumors and reports are true of how much he likes him. It will also be interesting because a lot of the episode that discussed football character and character in general.
