Defensive lineman Jess Speight and offensive lineman Andrew Vastardis both received full scholarships within the last couple of weeks after spending several years in the program as walk-ons. Speight, the younger brother of former Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight, had an idea that a scholarship offer was coming but that did not diminish the accomplishment one bit. Vastardis echoed Speight's sentiments and even got a little emotional explaining how he felt when he learned that he was no longer a walk-on.
Both lineman have displayed a work ethic, commitment to the team and overall attitude worthy of a reward and you could tell that they were appreciative and proud of their new status. They both met with the media on Tuesday, which is obviously new to them, giving them a chance to share their story.
