If a school has already filled its scholarships for the year, is there a way you can still wow the coach into recruiting you?

If a school has already filled its number of recruits for your year, is there any way you can still wow the coach into recruiting you?

No, the NCAA limits programs on the number of scholarships that they are able to offer, and it varies by sport. If there are no scholarships, there are no scholarships.

If you are extremely interested and the coaching staff would like to have you, you could enroll for a season at a Junior College and then transfer to a four-year program, if there are scholarships available for the next class. Coaches could tentatively hold a scholarship for you in the next class if they wanted, but it wouldn’t be binding until you signed your NLI. This would have to be a situation you worked out with the coaching staff before you take the risk.

You could also enroll as a walk-on, and talk to the coaches about possibly being put on scholarship the next year, but you’re taking a risk that it may not happen! If it’s a school you have your heart set on attending, then it may be worth it to take out student loans or earn other scholarships.
