Is there any difference between preferred walk on and reg? And do they get anything from the university like books meals jw thanks
Preferred walk-ons are guaranteed a spot on the 105-man roster. Other walk-ons try out for the remaining spots
A preferred walk on means that the player has a guaranteed spot on the roster. The player does not have to "try out"...a true walk on has to try to make the team. And I do not think either receive any help at least from an athletic scholarship point.

No, the "preferred" status just denotes that they will likely keep you on the team for the first year. Being a walk-on, preferred or not is not an easy life. You get few of the perks the scholarship players and get to be a glorified tackling dummy in practice.
