BTW, he also won the Lilly foundation scholarship which, if he decides to accept it, might actually free up an ND roster spot.

 

I could be wrong, but having a FB schollie give you access to training table and other perks that walk-ons and other non schollie athletes don't get.

 

Even so having the Lilly Foundation Scholarship is quite an achievement as well.

I think this was cleared up years ago by the NCAA. If you are on scholarship at your school in any way, but play on the football team, your scholarship counts against the football team. Even if you play another sport at the school that is your "primary sport".

I think that is dependent on the school providing the scholly. In this instance the student would not be receiving any aid from said school. The scholly money comes from Lilly. Furthermore, the money would go with him regardless where he went.

 

If an athlete is recruited and plays football or basketball, he or she may not receive institutional financial aid without becoming a counter and counting against the scholarship limits. Outside aid like federal Pell grants or state grants would be allowed, but the athlete could not receive any of the need and even academic aid a school offers.

Yes and no. There is a hierarchy in scholly

 

football>basketball>baseball>everything else

 

Also, regarding non athletic scholly's they need to be available to the general public and not related to athletic ability not to count as an athletic scholly.

“It does not matter who you are, what your star is or what you did in high school,” Kiser said. “Everybody is restarting. Everybody is square one. You have to come in and prove yourself every single day.”
