Hogs looking at several Joe T prospects

RD, a question on J.T. Towers. Would Towers qualify for an academic scholarship with a GPA of 4.1 and 26 ACT?

I would think so.

Didn’t think you could be on academic scholly and play football. Wouldn’t he have to be on football scholly and count against 85?

You can practice with the team without being a football Counter while on an academic scholarship, but when you play in a game you have to go on scholarship and count against the total scholarship limit of 85.

If place on football scholarship with less than one academic year on campus, then the player would count against both the 25 per year and the total limit of 85.

Thanks bigjohn. I knew you would know the answer to my question from reading your past posts.
