Do you have any highlights

there is no film on this kid. Hes only played a couple of years of organized ball and only had 12 catches last year, 7 for TD's. He came to camp and showed out. He ran a 4.40 40 which for his height is blazing. The whole reason he got the offer is first he will count back to last year but even more he may qualify for an athletic scholly. If so that means he"ll basicly be a walk on and wont count towards the football schollys at all which is even more of a plus. It well worth the risk that he may or may not pan out.

Explain the concept of him getting an athletic scholarship and being able to play football and not count as a football scholarship? A football scholarship is considered an athletic scholarship.. You sure you didn't mean academic scholarship.

SSSSSHHHHHHHHH...don't tell nobody

If he ever plays a down, he will still be counted as an athletic scholarship under the 85 limit since he was a recruited player. Nevertheless, good risk/reward for Florida since they basically get a free try-out without him being an immediate counter on the 25/85.

I know he meant an academic scholarship. My point is that academic aid or not, he still falls under the category of a football scholarship player under the 85 limit (if he plays) because he was a recruited player. This keeps schools like Alabama from using the Bryant Scholarship to give all of the legacy kids a free ride and keep them from counting on the 85. Only a non-recruited player can receive an academic scholarship or any other type of aid and not count against the 85 limit. The NCAA decides whether a player is a "recruited" athlete or "non-recruited" athlete, but with the Florida kid's offers to play with the Gators and other schools there is no question he will be deemed a "recruited" athlete.

The benefit Florida get by placing him on academic scholarship is, if he does not pan out, they do not play him in a game and he will not count against the 85.
