Tim Hill Walk-On Senior db Played one game this season.

William Ham Walk-On Redshirt Sophomore K still walk-on played 3 games.

Nick Moore Walk-On Sophomore had tackle last year played 3 games 2016 walk-on still.

Steven Van Tiflin Walk-On redshirt sophomore WR played one game 2016 walk-on.

Thomas Swilley Walk-On Junior OG played one game 2015 one game 2016 walk-on.

I believe I recall we provided Keyon Brown Walk-On Redshirt Sophomore a Scholarship and he has played in one game 2016.

Mitchell Wasson F K still walk-on has not played 2016.

I believe I recall we provided Mirko Jurkovic Walk-On Redshirt Freshman a Scholarship but he has not played in 2016 and would appear to have loads in front of him at TE.

Daniel Gothard Freshman on roster preferred walk-on still – has not played 2016.


Of course there is quite a class coming-in 2017 whom I have long-since listed as our # 1 recruiting class of all-time none ever any better already committed for 2017.
