A pair of walk-ons have been rewarded for their hard work for the Michigan football program.
Kicker Kenny Allen and linebacker Dan Liesman have both earned full scholarships, according to a few of their teammates on Twitter.

Michigan was able to do this because they have some wiggle room with scholarships following some attrition over the off-season and they were below the 85 scholarship limit.
Allen was active in the 24-17 loss to Utah, handling four kickoffs and converting on one of his two field goal tries. He made a 29-yarder and missed one from 44. Liesman did not play.
