Yes. That's a big no-no. Anything to do with a professional organization (gratuities, lodging, meals, money, etc.) and ANY kind of compensation voids his NCAA eligibility. I mean, if White were to play in an exhibition game in August with the Bathurst Titan, he would lose his eligibility. Him not signing, as a 19 year old, is not worrying, at all. It's par the course.
