all atheltic scholarships are year to year, coach/school can pull them or reduce from one year to the next at any time. calaslimey (KY BB) did this to several returning players a couple of years ago to make room for incoming frosh (he expects most of his kids to declare early, and if they dont, they risk this).How does this work for H.S. seniors that signed there NLI? Is the NLI an official contract that cannot be broken? Is there a contract that states how much money incoming the incoming freshman was guaranteed to receive?
Then you have the current college seniors. I thought their scholarships in P5 conference were relatively guaranteed and the college is not allowed to decrease their current scholarship money. I have a lot of questions and no answers. This just seems like it will be a mess.
The decision to give an extra year of eligibility does not affect my daughter, she is too young. Just trying to understand the money side of this decision.
