A friend of mine has a Nephew that plays for one of the Pac 12 schools , and we were talking and his Nephew was in need of something very minor but needed badly but didn’t have the means to buy it - - My Buddy said when he heard he thought well Hell I’ll send him the money so he can get this myself - - then like I told him when I heard and he said before I even had the chance to say - - NOPE can’t do that - -that would be impermissible benefits and would instantly make him ineligible and him become a booster.
Believe me we are taking tiny amount of money , just another example of these kids not being allowed to get any kind of support - -crazy rules - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
For me, @jayballer73’s post raised a question. Can these scholarship players accept money for their parents? I can’t imagine that a parent wouldn’t want to provide basic necessities. Are parents allowed to help and the line is drawn at extended family members, or not even the parents are allowed?
