Former Walk-ons Gets Football Scholarships

Junior fullback Jon Hoese and sophomore defensive back Bryan Klitzke, two former walk-ons, have been awarded scholarships for the 2009 season.

Jon Hoese converted from safety to fullback during 2008 training camp. The special teams standout scored touchdowns on two of his first three career carries during the 2008 Insight Bowl. Hoese was an Academic All-Big Ten selection.

Bryan Klitzke, a redshirt sophomore, who did not see any playing time last season, had three tackles in the season opener.
