Historically, how have our sholarship kickers done vs walk-ons?

With the commitment of a scholarship kicker last week, a number of people posted that it's worth it to spend a scholly on a great kicker, which I agree with. But the devil's advocate says: it's not worth it because walk-ons can become great kickers just as much as a highly sought recruit, and sometimes the guy with the scholly out of HS doesn't become a great kicker like you thought he would. It got me thinking: Of the good kickers we've had over the years, how many of them of had a scholly out of HS compared to being a walk-on? And for the guys that have a scholly out of HS, what percentage of them have become great kickers? I seem to remember a couple of kickers over the years who had a scholly out of HS who didn't do any better than walk-ons on the roster.

  It just seems odd not to use a scholarship on them... -- The Venetian 07/12/2021 12:53PM
  OK, but not any other position? -- The Venetian 07/12/2021 4:39PM
  Miami isn’t a clear example tho. -- 4thYear5th 07/13/2021 9:22PM
  It is always easier to think of exceptions -- GtownHoo 07/12/2021 08:14AM
