    Did you watch the video? Not a Big 12 player.

    Re: Kenny Ejim

    He seems decent. I posted in another thread that it would be great if we could get him as a walk on that can earn a scholly down the road. Not sure what offers he has though.

    Maybe not quite with the skill set but with some work he is athletically and physically capable of playing in the Big 12. I just think he would be a nice get as a walk-on. I'm sure he is high motored like his bro as well.

    Re: Kenny Ejim

    A walk on paying out of state tuition and international student expenses out of pocket? unlikely i would think

    If he is a student like Melvin then he would definitely get some type of scholarship (ton available for OOS and int'l) not to mention potentially earning a scholly down the road. Obviously unlikely to happen but i wouldn't be against it

    Really? His highlight video is pretty much as good as Melvins high school video was. Kenny gets after it.

    Academic scholarships for athletes still count against team scholarship counts. To walk on you have to pay for school.

    We already have 2 out of state walk ons as it is. Not that crazy to imagine a 3rd.

    Ncaa site says you can get other aid if sn athlete though they don't say it counts. Can you provide verification of this? I have heard it on this board but it doesn't jive with what wrestling does as I know some of those kids get a mixture of partial athletic and other aid like pell grants or academic in some cases making it near a full scholly for many.

    I'm almost positive that football and men's basketball (and perhaps a couple others) have different rules as they are headcount scholarship sports where there are no partial scholarships.

    I had scholarship money from the Marine Corp Scholarship Foundation (because my dad was in the Marines) when I was a walkon and it didn't count.

    La Gesse Column: The NCAA let Tyler Leo down | Ames Tribune

    Leo is a legit Einstein. He could be on essentially a full academic scholarship, but because he was a football walk-on he couldn’t use it.
    I believe there is something about if a student athlete in one of these sports was ever recruited for the sport, any scholarship counts as an athletic scholly. If he was never recruited for the sport it doesn't count - something like that.

    Here's how they define a kid as a recruited athlete:

    I never knew that was the story with Leo. That's a shame.

    How tall is he? If he's any shorter than Melvin...
