This story has a happy ending

First, the guy's name is Emiliano Gonzalez. He's currently playing in the Orange Bowl under-18 tournament, where he has done well in the past.
A few months ago, he was accepted at Gonzaga, and was planning on going there. However, Gonzaga didn't come through with a scholarship. This wasn't their fault. Because of the NCAA's decision that gives athletes another year of eligibility, Gonzaga didn't have any scholarships to give; they are all taken by guys who are there already.
However, he was working with a consultant that matches up available scholarships with available athletes, and the result was, he got a 50% scholarship at Delaware. This was done pretty much sight unseen. The coach at Delaware just went by his ITF ranking, UTR, and SAT score.
So, Emiliano didn't know much of anything about the place, other than he wants to study engineering, and Delaware has it. This has now been corrected; I told his dad all about what a great school Delaware is.
