I know you can take a walk on a give him a scholarship. Can the reverse be done?
Yes. If there is a player who has the means to pay his own way, the team can give the scholarship to another player. I'm pretty sure Louisville did this with Kyle Kuric, from Evansville Memorial, several years ago. There was discussion here on this board a couple years ago about Blake Simmons being taken off athletic scholarship so the scholarship could be used for another player.
