(WSCR) Earning a scholarship is every walk-ons dream.

USC walk-on linebacker Will Andrew saw his dream come true when the school awarded him with a scholarship.

Andrew’s dream, however, fell apart when linebacker Simione Vehikite was released from jail last week after serving a little more than three months for leaving the scene of a car accident. Vehikite was driving with a .08 percent blood-alcohol level and sentenced to a year in jail.

After his early release, Vehikite was put back on scholarship by USC head coach Lane Kiffin at the expense of Andrew.
