Is that a special agreement with the Ivy League or is it just the application of an existing rule? The Ivy Agreement, which was between the Ivy schools, was revised about 10 years ago to reduce the number of recruited football players to 120 or a max of 30/year, among other revisions.

Football or Basketball, Varsity Competition. In football or basketball, a student-athlete who was recruited (see Bylaw 15.02.8) by the awarding institution and who receives institutional financial aid
(as set forth in Bylaw granted without regard in any degree to athletics ability does not have to be counted
until the student-athlete engages in varsity intercollegiate competition (as opposed to freshman, B-team, subvarsity, intramural or club competition) in those sports.

So, it seems to me that since all Ivy aid is non-athletic, Ivy teams can stick players on their JV teams and the aid won't count toward NCAA limits until the player actually gets to varsity and the team that lines up on the field on Saturday is still limited to 63 equivalencies. Correct?
