PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
No offer, nor do I imagine he will get one.
The scholarship would count toward football regardless. If an athlete plays 2 sports it always count toward the sport allowed more scholarships
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
I think it would be a smart move for both parties.

Oh thanks for the clarification
His basketball offers have all come from mid-major level programs.
I can't really see Urban allowing a playmaker to miss so much by playing 2 sports. Like @TennBuckeye said, he's a mid-major basketball talent.
Triv, I went through this with one of our HS Q's who ended up on a baseball scholly at U of Wash. What the football staff told us was that if he walked onto the football team and played before he played a baseball season his scholly would count against football, but if he played a baseball season first the scholly would indeed be in baseball for his entire stay at the school so long as he continued playing baseball. As a result, he did not walk onto the football team as he would have missed his freshman year in order to play. Was a good thing, became the ace on the pitching staff.
I concure with SEC Buckeye. A guy who went to my high school played for the Bucks in the mid to late 90s. He was recruited to play football (DE) and ended up playing basketball too, drawing the ire of Cooper and being banished to special teams. He ended up starting his senior year but I was told that he had to quit the basketball team.

NW Buckeye I did not know that was allowed, good to know
If Corn was coming to OSU it would be on a football scholarship...he is in talks with Matta about being a walk-on to the basketball team as well and would be someone who could potentially actually see the court down the line if he stuck to hoops while playing football....a lot of prospects come in saying they want to play both, but it doesn't happen usually because of the commitment to a sport like football...Cam Heyward, Terrelle Pryor and some others all talked about walking on to the hoops squad during their careers but once they saw the commitment it took to be great on the gridiron, they realized playing hoops would hinder that....Corn's future professionally lies in football, not basketball even though he is a very good bball player....I think the basketball experiment wouldn't last more than a year if it happens...just my opinion
Seriously!! He is an average NAIA or Lower D1 player and you would want him for the Basketball team? He is tough as nails though to be that skinny and run the football as hard as he does. I just hope he doesnt slow down too much like most thin players do since he needs to gain approx 15% just for an average build. He is a better football player than basketball.
He should join a intramural bball team problem solved
