Incoming QB Randall Cunningham Status

According to a USC spokesperson, if quarterback/high jumper Randall Cunningham plays in a game for the Trojans, he would count as a football scholarship. So he can be on team next season and compete on the track team.

Cunningham is currently on a track scholarship.

    So that’s USC’s plan to get around the sanctions… giving out “scholarshups”.

      except for the fact the kid is a world class high jumper…oh, and SC doesn’t need more quarterbacks. This is a win-win for both sides.

      They cost less, Sucla has been using them for years.

    Does anyone know when the sanctions officially end? Does that mean USC could offer more scholarships the next day to someone like Cunningham?

          I think walk-ons don’t count against the 75 but do against the 85.

            Not sure what you mean by “count.” Last season we had 110 players (scholarships and walk-ons) on the roster.

            As of last weeks signings; 71 scholarships have been spoken for, which includes all 15 (plus 4 unused from the 2013 class and given to early enrollees) allowed under the NCAA sanctions.

            I believe that Max Wittek’s scholarship will become available in the summer, and could go to a “walk-on” already on the team and in school. I also believe that the same is true of any of the 71 become available, they can go to walk-ons.

      Any scholarships given will go against USC’s 25 scholarship limit for next year

    So Cunningham and the Hawaiian kid will probably get scholarships in June.

    i’m confused. if he has a track scholarship, couldn’t he just walk on to the football team? Adoree has a football scholarship. if he runs, does that count as track scholarship?

      If you rub the Wolfman’s bald head just right, you can get that answer!

    • Helen

      Short answer – no.
      Long answer – NCAA.

    • B.Miller

      According to the NCAA. If he plays in any actual football games he will officially be changed to a football Scholarship..
      He can play on the practice squad..

      Personal opinion I would like to see the kid play ball

    What? ……You’re all confused! Please get the cranium checked out

    He can’t Play in a game for two years….after that he can play and it will be a okay….So HE can redshirt to learn to play WR or improve as a QB.
