Ok, I was reading this story, http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/columns/story?columnist=forde_pat&id=2376091
and i came across this:
Allen said he was prepared to sign a national letter-of-intent with Houston. His benefactor, Ken Bennett, the founder of a group called Streets Ministries that reaches out to help kids from the toughest neighborhoods in South Memphis, put in a call to Calipari.
Next thing he knew, Allen had an invitation to join the team as a walk-on. The school could not pay his way or let him practice because he was an academic nonqualifier, so Streets Ministries paid his tuition. Bennett was in the stands in Dallas cheering on Andre.
"They do a lot for me," Allen said of Streets Ministries. "They helped me in high school, helped me in middle school. If it wasn't for Streets, I probably wouldn't be at Memphis."
What if I started my own "Streets Ministries" at UT and paid for scholarships for players that Texas wanted and guaranteed a walk on place for by the coach, but didn't have the scholarships to take. Would that be ok?
