Any chance ND will bring Torii Hunter Jr. in under a baseball scholarship and have him join the football team in 2014.
I suppose that's a possibility, but as soon as he joins the football team he would be counted as a football scholarship. You'd pretty much be giving Hunter a spot in the 2014 class instead of 2013. I'm guessing he rehabs and puts all his effort into football this spring and summer.
I realize these statements are being made under the assumption that Torii is going to redshirt, be it medical or otherwise. It's been mentioned by BGI staff on multiple occasions that if a scholarship student athlete is going to be a 2sport athlete and one of those sports is football, the 'ship MUST be counted against the football total.

This was essentially the plan w/ Will Yeatman before Hiben (who is back at ND) had a meltdown and transferred to Minnesota.
Sorry this is wrong and there is a loophole.
If Torii is unable to play football in 2013. He can come in on a baseball scholarship, however I'm a bit confused on exactly what it is, but his Football in Spring 2013 would be limited. I'm not even sure if he could join the team or if he's just not allowed to dress.
After he participated in his Freshman year of baseball, then as a Sophmore 2014 he can go out for football. However once he goes out for football or dresses or makes the team the baseball scholarship gets transferred over to a football scholarship.
Here's a link on Will Yeatman - who was going this route until Hiben had a fit. I know Nomar also was going to walk on GT as a kicker before the Coach looked into the situation.
