So honest question here: Does the NCAA have to clear walk ons? If UofI accepted him, as it appears they have and he has good grades and is a smart kid, why couldn’t he get an academic scholly and walk on the team. Maybe as a red shirt? I don’t know the ins and outs of how that might work, but I do wonder if we are always as creative as we could be, especially when you have a kid who clearly has the smarts to be a student here.With all the sanctimony about being dedicated to student athletes, how can the NCAA look the other way on UNC’s academic feud, but not clear a kid that is fifth in his class? Keeping a kid with legitimate academic potential away from a scholarship over some paperwork. Way to look out for the student athletes. What a joke.
