That's fine and perfectly understandable but I will be more than a little disappointed if he ends up in another PL school or another one of our opponents unless it is in the national championship game sometime in the net 4 years,
Sometimes PWO does a few things Admission with a blink and nod since if requested formally by staff it counts on the numbers Join summer camp at the same time as all scholarship players Registration for classes
At least the way it was for one of my sons who went to UVA 20 plus years ago

When I hear “preferred walk on” I think of guys who are contacted by FBS schools and encouraged to attend without a scholarship. I think they serve mostly as practice players. This distinguishes them from non-scholarship players who try out for the team without prior contact with coaches.
I agree with 4-3. Walk on is a walk on. I never hear anyone comment “ He started as a preferred walk on and earned a scholarship”, it’s just walk on. Hell - the kids on the team don’t say, Oh yah he’s a preferred walk on.
It’s like when a kid says - thankful to receive an offer from Colby College. That’s impossible because D3 doesn’t offer.
Offer is used way too loosely these days as well.

Anyone have any word on how QB recruit Marco Siderman did this year? How was the competition level? Footwork and talent level?
I believe Siderman is a bigger kid with more raw running skills than Helms. Helms is identified on rating sites as a Pro-Style QB which suggests he is more of a pocket passer. I also believe that Siderman was actually ranked slightly higher nationally at QB by one of the rating sites than Helms, for what that is (or isn’t) worth.
Siderman's team went 2-9 this past season. Must not play much defense in that league.
His high school, Westlake, is public; not to be confused with Harvard-Westlake, which is not. Heather MacDonald attended the Westlake portion of Harvard Westlake before the two schools merged.
I live in that county and Westlake plays very high quality teams in that division. They usually make the playoffs or are at the top of their league but had a down year. I think they lost a lot of senior leadership this year. I haven’t been able to watch too much of siderman but he comes from a usually quality program so I think he will be a welcome addition to the team.

A preferred walk-on is a counter, if he receives financial aid of any sort. A counter counts against the cap of 85. A walk-on is not a counter if he receives financial aid, and does not count against the cap.
