Croom awards scholarships to 4 walk-ons

By Ian R. Rapoport


STARKVILLE — Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom announced Wednesday that he added four players to the program’s scholarship list.

Senior safety Marcus Evans of Starkville, senior fullback Casey Rogers, senior running back Derek Ambrose and junior receiver Lance Long were all awarded athletic aid.

Each of the former walk-ons is on either the two-deep depth chart or is a special teams contributor. Evans made six tackles last season; Rogers had six tackles on special teams and caught two balls for 32 yards out of the backfield; Ambrose had 15 carries for 90 yards last season before tearing his knee ligament; and Long caught seven balls for 41 yards.
