Video: Gary Andersen surprises a walk-on with a scholarship

 Excellent behind the scenes look here at the new feel at Wisconsin under Gary Andersen in his first fall camp.

About midway through the clip Andersen surprises a walk-on linebacker with a scholarship, and you can feel the excitement in the room.

First Andersen invites the player to the front of the room to offer some advice to other players and then, fighting back a huge smile, he asks "Do you have a Twitter? Or Facebook?" and then surprises the player with the news and suggests putting it on social media to let his family and friends know.

This kind of story is always great to see this time of year, and the rest of the video is full of great behind the scenes footage at meetings and during practice. We're looking forward to plenty more quality content out of the guys in Madison in the coming episodes.
