    Big A

    From his profile on Scout, it sounds just as likely that he'll play basketball instead of football. I just hope he does choose to participate in some form of athletics at UA. How's his putting?

    Wait, I thought it didn't matter if a player was going to school on another schollie - if they play football it counts against your 85.

    Anyone to clarify?

    It wouldn't be a scholarship, just a baseball team footing his education bill. He would only count against the 105 roster limit.

    I thought that if you were a "recruited walk-on" you were counted against the 85 even if you were not on scholarship. We did recruit him at one point so one would think...

    That's true. A scholy player that plays football counts against FB scholy limits. They have a smilar rule for basketball too.

    The recruited part only applies to finincial aid such as the Bryant Scholarship. A recruited player on the Bryant scholarship must sit out 2 years before playing. A non-recruited player does not have to wait.

    This article covers this issue.

    ThumbsUp

    this statement sums it all up;
    “If a walk-on athlete pays his own way entirely and receives no institutional aid, it would not matter if he is deemed ‘recruited’ or ‘not recruited,’” King said. “This individual would have no impact on UA's scholarship numbers.”

    Thanks for the link

    I remember him being part of the mass exodous of good players that left the state that year.

    So far under shula we have signed a number of these "thought I was getting rich playing baseball but got reemed" kids, and not one has panned out for squat, however I see no reason to stop trying since it doesn't really cost us anything.

    I remember his HS recruiting well.......he was rumored to be a Bama lean,and then pulled the"now very old" hat trick and swapped his Bama hat for a Stanford one! I will admit I actually was glad he then signed a Baseball contract! He was a QB in HS,but was projected to be a WR.I have heard he is on campus at T Town,but have yet to hear of any intent to play ball.He could help us out in Basketball or Football for sure b/c he is a good athlete.To be honest, we are ok at wr so I would love to see him give the ole round ball a try.

    Hey guys,

    Not sure if Jai is here on campus, but as of right now he is not enrolled at UA. Actually saw that he was on Facebook for UA, but sent him a message on there and he said he wasn't enrolled.
