You went wrong with applying logic.
Max is 85.
I thought that was the number. So down the road if we are short we can put some of these walk ons on a scholly is how I understand it.
It's applied specifically to preferred walk ons not regular walk ons. The reason being is most preferred walk ons are recruited and that is why they'd count back toward the class 25 limit.
So you can scholarship the guy in his sophomore year no penalty. If he was recruited though he then counts back to the 25 max per class limit.
If you were at 25 this would be a problem.
If you weren't then you're fine.
If you wait until he is two years removed in his junior year you can scholarship him and NOT have to apply that to the 25 man class limit.
That's my understanding. Hope I am right and that it helps. Feel free to correct me anyone.
Meant to protect FCS schools and the kids they recruit? I guess... kinda seems like they’re shafting kids, but I guess some wiley recruiter could talk a lesser talented kid into debt with the dream of a scholarship that may never happen. Seems like the same could be said of regular walk-ons, but to a lesser extent.
It's the kid's choice. Ih he's good enough to be offered preferred wslkon status at an LSU or Alabama he's good enough for be offered a schooly at a McNeese or Nicholls or even a ULM or a UAB.
Looks like the JR restriction applies to all walk-ons. Protect the poor untalented kids from being victimized unless they are gullible enough to wait for 2 years.
