What's the difference between the two? My son just finished his soph. year as a JUCO pitcher.
He had a great year, but didn't start getting interest until late in the season.
A top 20 D1 is interested, but doesn't have any money left. He was told that they would like to have him walk on, but that they could give him no assistance in getting grants, loans, etc., because he wasn't technically part of the team. He also couldn't begin fall practice with the rest of the team, he'd have to wait until the other walk ons tryout.
Is this the way it normally works? I've heard of preferred walk ons, do they do it the same way?
This is a program that he's been interested in for years. He wants some advice, and I don't know how this normally works.
