Junior OL Mike Kne, a walk-on from St. Ignatius who transferred to OSU from Fordham, has been put on scholarship today.

OSU offensive lineman Mike Kne told reporters after practice that he signed his scholarship papers today, elevating him from walk-on status to scholarship status.

The 6-4, 300 pound Kne played extensively against Bowling Green at guard. He figures to be in line for a starting spot as a senior and will continue to be a big part of the offensive line mix this year.

Kne talked about when he broke the news to his parents.

"They were ecstatic," he said. "They knew I had been working hard. They were just so happy."

Kne was proud of the fact that he had been elevated from a walk-on to a scholarship player.

"I felt good because it felt like I had earned it," he said.

Stay tuned for a feature story on Mike Kne from Charles Babb soon.
