Its a really small part of a yearly rhythm of college football which it doesnt usually happen until preseason camp in August, but walk-ons receiving full scholarships are always touching moments.
As usual, P.J. Fleck took it to the next level here by having a full on Easter egg hunt for his team with over 1,000 eggs around the facility. At the end, an announcement of a scholarship offer for was hidden in the eggs for linebacker Blake Cashman. Still, five different linebackers recorded at least seven tackles for loss, and four of them return. Evan Colorito and Tre Thomas are dynamic at stuffing the run — they combined for 14.5 tackles for loss, and 12 of them were of the non-sack variety —and while starting weakside linebacker Kevin Davis is gone, Deonte Clyburn, who missed 2016 with a blood-clot condition, should return. He had nearly as many TFLs in 2015 (7) as Davis did last year (10.5).
In the 3-4 structure, the job of the linemen is to occupy blockers, not create havoc themselves. They did that pretty well, but CSUs run defense was inconsistent and finished just 100th in Rushing S&P+. In a ridiculous run league like the MWC, thats going to hold you back. Three of the top four linemen return, and Bobo plumped up the tackle two-deep with a couple of JUCOs — 270-pound, three-star play-maker Christian Howard and man-mountain Jamori Fox.

And Cashman isnt just some player who never sees the field either. He played in all 13 games on special teams as a freshman, then as a sophomore led the team in sacks with 7.5. He was Big Ten player of the week once and was the defensive MVP of the Holiday Bowl.

To top the whole day off, Fleck announced that the team was going to go out to dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse. The chefs come carve the meat tableside and its all-you-can-eat.
