If a kid is paying his own way, whether it be by parents or through student loans, do NCAA rules apply to them as far as "extra" benefits?
yes, or else kids could just walk-on and accept tens of thousands of dollars from boosters, pay their tuition, and have a lot of cash left.
Well, what I'm wondering, if a scholarship player gets all his housing, food, etc paid for but a walk on has to pay for his tuition, food, rent, etc. then how could the NCAA stop this kid from getting money from others from work, loans, or the like?
Scholarship players can get student loans and work a job for extra income. It just can't be more money or a better deal than regular students get.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
I know schollie players can't, but I was just wondering what enforcement the NCAA could have on a kid that's paying his own way through school. What if he "brokered" his own deal with a wealthy Buckeye and they gave him spending money. Not sure how the NCAA could do anything about it if it's not a kid on scholarship, what will they do, reduce your walk on numbers?
Huh? The NCAA could call it a violation and dock them scholarships or other sanctions, and the player could be ruled ineligible. It's not like the punishment has to be against walk-ons because a walk-on committed the violation. Its not like they reduced the number of Qbs we could have on the roster because TP was a QB and he got in trouble.

In your scenario kids would never accept scholarships they would just go to where boosters would pay them most and never get aid from the school
Well if players could get more money by walking on they would do it and schools would have problems fulfilling the 85 scholarship count. NCAA rules apply for college athletics not for scholarship players that play college athletics. UCLA is the reason why the NCAA had to define 2 sport athletes because they took ran out of volleyball scholarships but so they gave them soccer scholarships. If walking-on would have been a better deal for the athlete they would have done that.
I was a walk on at Ohio State. Same rules. Same everything except for one thing.
When you walk on and beat the hell out of scholsrship jocks...oh baby! A feeling like none other. Because I did it on my dime and my time.
