On preferred walk-on guard Conner Lipinski's scholarship

14

Over the past day or two, many - primarily IMS and Terps Insider - have reported that Conner Lipinski, a 2012 preferred walk-on guard from AACS, was being put on scholarship. It was a bit puzzling - after all, if you can get someone you like as a walk-on, why use a scholarship? Here's some helpful non-paywall'd clarification from the Capital Gazette. It made all the sense in the world to put him on scholarship for next season - Maryland had a free one, so might as well make use of it and do something nice. And apparently there may've been some compliance issues that were smoothed over by getting him on scholarship, which makes this make even more sense. The thing I still don't get, though: it's supposedly a two-year scholarship. That's apparently a thing now, but I'm not sure why Maryland would go out of their way to offer it with a scholarship crunch already in place in the '13 class. Could it be two "years" in academic terms - ie, semesters? Or maybe Turgeon just really likes him. Hopefully this'll get cleared up over the next few days.
