The kid has some freakish athletic abilities. He's 5'10" and slam dunks with ease! As a WR, he's a 3 star rated .8104, for whatever that's worth.

Thank you all for your support as my son Zach continues to beat leukemia

I assume coach hunter will give him an opportunity to prove himself but this doesn’t count against his scholarships (is this correct ?). Is he like A preferred walk on for basketball ? Being under 6 foot it’s amazing how good he is ! Hope he crushes it as a slot receiver and high energy guard for us

Is he more likely to make an impact at football or basketball?

IMHO, more probable a standout in football. His highlight videos in basketball show nothing but drives to basket for layups/dunks. At 5’10” won’t be able to do that in college. Needs to develop outside shot to be more than a spot player in BBall.

I believe you are correct that it will only count against our football scholarship limit.

He plays for a high school in very north metro Austin, and about 15 miles south of where I live... I watched the B'Ball hilites, give em a PG that can penetrate and open the big men up for easy shots...he has mastered the "palming/carrying' the ball to almost an expert level
