All guts and no glory. Would like to see a round-table with all the walk-ons one day to hear why they do it.

Welcome Shaan.

Definitely helps in practice against starters. But I'm the same in that why would a kid come from Cali or Florida when there are tons of smaller schools they could go to maybe even on schollie.

In his case may be that he likes the Kelley School or got some sort of financial aid and thought "Well, since I'm here"... No idea but would like to hear their stories, anecdotes, what have you.

I still have eligibility, can I go too? Just saying.
I like the move.
Anybody know if walk-on GPA's count for the team's overall score?
Go Hoosiers!
My cousin coached at Vincennes and Olney juco after he finished playing. He said a walk on wasn't added unless they would have a positive impact on the team GPA.

Jucos are notorious for kids not getting grades, but having talent. I bet he has some killer stories.
