RALEIGH — Coach Dave Doeren had a surprise for three Wolfpack walk-ons in last night’s team meeting. In front of the entire team, he announced that Milton Hall, Jake Kahut and Josh Stanley have earned scholarships.
“These young men have shown great character on and off the field during our spring and summer programs,” said Doeren, who rewarded 10 walk-ons with scholarships during his two seasons at Northern Illinois.
Hall, a redshirt junior running back from Burlington, saw action in two contests last season, rushing seven times for 49 yards.
Kahut, a senior defensive tackle from Wake Forest, missed last season after suffering a knee injury, but played on both sides of the ball in 2011.
Stanley, a redshirt sophomore safety, played in all 13 games last season as part of the special teams units.
