NCAA regulations for football and basketball do not allow non-profit sponsorship for athletes for a number of reasons. One being that wealthy individuals who would provide this funding would likely want to assign specific players to their alma mater. Schools with wealthy and willing alumni would clearly have an unfair advantage, and in addition, this practice would not be fair to the entire pool of prospective college athletes.
This information is not easily accessible on the NCAA website, but with help from Athletic Resource, college athletes are able to access, understand, and comply with all NCAA restrictions.
