Geez I would think so but have no knowledge. Few kids from my area go to UofI anymore because basically every out of state college offers them instate tuition anymore so it’s cheaper for the kids to go out of state.
I don't know a whole lot about this topic, but I do know there are such things as academic scholarships, leadership scholarships, free room and board and things of that nature. Also, these players do get to eat with the teams so therefore they're essentially getting free meals, huge bonus. Dlll cannot offer athletic scholarships, but they can offer these sort of things and they do that to bring in players for various sports. Also, I would think a PWO gets some sort of help or they would be considered a walk-on, possibly? Not arguing what so ever as I am not an expert here, just bouncing off ideas.
