Walk On Kyle Negrete now on Scholarship

Kyle Negrete on Long Awaited Scholarship

He's taking his final three undergrad classes this semester and will finish his degree in business administration in December. He'll begin work on his MBA in January, still on scholarship, and plans to use a $10,000 post-graduate scholarship he recently won to continue taking classes.

Negrete punted all of last season for the Trojans without a scholarship. It was the first time since punter Greg Woidneck in 2006 that USC used a walk-on kicker or punter for a full season.

Trojans coach Lane Kiffin was talking to his team at the conclusion of Sunday's practice and providing reminders for upcoming days and events. All of the team's scholarship players had to be on campus at 9 a.m. the next day to get their textbooks for the upcoming semester, set to begin that day.

Then, in an aside, Kiffin added: "Negrete, make sure you don't pay for your books this year."

Negrete didn't realize what that meant right away -- not until center Khaled Holmes looked over to him, grinned wide and said, "Congratulations!"

Then he got it: He was on scholarship.

congratulations Kyle! You're a great kick to watch :)
