Three Northwestern walk-ons awarded scholarships
NU coach Pat Fitzgerald announced after Tuesday's practice that three walk-ons will receive scholarships for this school year.
The three players are senior long snapper John Henry Pace, senior defensive lineman Andrew Struckmeyer and junior cornerback Ricky Weina.
The three are in good company among NU walk-ons. Last season's leading receiver, Zeke Markshausen, was a walk-on and ended his college career with All-Big Ten and Academic All-American honors.
