Sophomore kicker Donald De La Haye said in a video he may have to decide whether to remain with the Knights football team or pursue his passion as a YouTube personality after meeting with the school's compliance office last week.

De La Haye was called into the compliance department and told that he cannot make money off of his YouTube videos. It’s probably safe to say the mysterious guy shutting him down could represent the NCAA .

De La Haye's YouTube channel, which currently has over 64,000 subscribers, landed him in a sticky situation after it was ruled that the involvement of advertisers represents a violation of NCAA rules.

De La Haye called the conundrum "the hardest choice in my whole entire life," when faced with the ultimatum of choosing NCAA football or following his passion for filmmaking.

"I'm still waiting to hear from the NCAA and people at compliance and all the guys up there," De La Haye said. "Like I said, I feel like I'm on trial, kind of. I didn't do anything bad, just been chasing my dreams, being positive, being happy, spreading love, spreading joy, spreading entertainment."

The decision could effectively end De La Haye's football career with the Knights after two seasons should the NCAA rule against him.
