Now if they could only get a kicker to transfer...
So this kid's punts averaged 42.08 yds last year and we averaged 38.6 yds as a team. Could be a nice improvement. And just for extra info our opponents averaged 43.3 yds last year.
I'm probably wrong but... there has got to be some former HS soccer player currently on campus that could punt that far and would love to play as a non-scholly player.

I'm pretty sure King is a walk-on, so he's not costing us a schollie and he actually has experience punting a football in a live game.

Don't know... BON is saying he'll probably be on scholarship!
Not necessarily, especially when it comes to kickers and punters. I remember a couple past instances where the staff went out to recruit kickers as non-scholarship players. The only one I remember is Trey DiCarlo, who ended up at OU.
