LSU awarded scholarships to walk-on linebacker Jonathan Rucker, a fifth-year senior from Ponchatoula, LA and third-year sophomore quarterback Caleb Lewis from Lakeland, FL on Friday. Per The Advocate:

Rucker, a fifth-year senior from Ponchatoula, has served as a key member to the Tigers' special teams over the past two years, and coach Ed Orgeron said Thursday that he could play this year at inside linebacker.

Lewis, who enrolled at the mid-year in 2015, has not played in a game, but he's a competent reserve. Lewis turned down several small college scholarship offers out of his Lakeland, Florida, high school, Victory Christian Academy.
Both players went public with news Friday afternoon via Twitter:

What an accomplishment for these young Tigers. Nothing impressed me more than a selfless, hardworking walk on who actually earns his scholarship. These guys are the examples of pride. I say this as a former scholarship/recruited guy. Remember, Verge Ausberry (among others) walked on that path and became an SEC caliber lb.

We fans can talk about our love of LSU, but these guys display their love through their blood sweat and tears. Congratulations on your hard work TIGERS.
