How do you figure Mccaskill fits into the rotation? If he could walk- on at UCLA, he’s got to be scholarship quality for Lehigh.

I think he could end up contributing, but I don’t think his time at UCLA indicates he will be scholarship quality for Lehigh. I can’t find evidence of any scholarship offers for McCaskill while he was at prep school, and have heard he was headed for a high level D3 before changing his mind and choosing to walk-on at UCLA. There was mutual interest between McCaskill and a number of Ivies it appears, but none of the schools ever offered McCaskill a spot. For the most part I wouldn’t say walk-ons at higher level schools are better than walk-ons at lower levels since almost any player would take a scholarship if offered one.
