No, hence the term "walk-on" and not "scholarship player"

No, but you do get to fill out a bunch of paperwork.

Hint: If you plan on walking on to your college team, give yourself more than a day to get everything signed.

Lee Melchioni for Duke was technically a walk-on.

BTW PdP, will I see any of the proceeds of The Truth Foundation? :wink:

I believe if you are on the active roster for 1 full season, the university must offer you a scholarship.

i don't believe that's true. Eventually, most coaches reward those guys with scholarships, but I don't think it's a must. It's definitley not a must after 1 season. I know of guys who were on a team for two full seasons before getting a scholarship.

Walkons do not have to ever be offered a scholorship. If your team choose to, they could have all non-scholorship players. Hence the IVY league. There are 3 types of players: scholorship, non-scholorship, and walk-on.
