30%? Plus academic money? I wouldnt take my pitcher off the market for that!!!Did that poster mean 30% of his allotted scholarship money was left, not 30% scholarship to player?
Oh ok, but 30% left for what then?
Let's do very simple hypothetical: Total Cost to attend: $30,000. # of total scholarships: 11.7. Total scholarship money out of Baseball budget: (30,000 X 11.7) = $351,000. Attrition and graduation 1 year out = 0 (all $351,000 accounted for with incoming and retained players); 2 years out = 0 (all $351,000 accounted for with incoming and retained players); 3 years out = 30% (70% or $245,700 accounted for with incoming 'committed' and retained players.
So at a 3 year out recruiting budget the money is reduced to $105,300 spread across the 27 man roster at minimum 25%. Let's say the program has 16 players on scholarship at 50% ($240,000) and is adding 11 players, all 11 could be awarded $10,000 (33%) of Cost to Attend.
The whole key to this financial consideration is the amount of full scholarships the school funds. Davidson, for instance, is said to be funded for no more than 5 full scholarships. Most Power 5 schools, I assume, have full funding for all 11.7 scholarships.
NTGSon was recruited by some D1s because his GPA and test scores were in the top 1-2% nationally and they could fund him almost 100% on academic monies - no athletic money, hence no impact on their budget, and no financial risk if he turned out to be a dud.
