Could A&M put Kohl Stewart on baseball scholarship until he plays football? Or does just practicing with the football team require that he take a football scholarship?
No. If you play football and you're on scholarship, then it counts towards football. No way around it.
I still say we convince Kohl to take a grey-shirt. I say this because they know the MLB is going to come after him hard & they will convince his parents of this if they are smart(& we all already know this staff is smart indeed).
Proverbs 10:4 (NIV)
Lazy hands make for poverty,
but diligent hands bring wealth.
I get the "play football" part. My question goes to "practice football", but not actually hit the field.
If we signed him to a baseball ship, we could get him on campus, still have time to find out if he's going pro and not lose anybody in this class due to schollie limits. We could then cut some dead wood/non-qualifiers, if he decides to stay.
Is this a possible way around the rules?

No. Either you are on the team and can practice with the team (in which case football scholarship) or you aren't and you can't. For baseball scholarship to work can't do anything with football that average student can't do. Besides, why would baseball team waste scholarship on him. Either he goes pro in baseball or plays college football. Next question.
