WATCH: Coach surprises walk-on guard with scholarship Published: October 23, 2013

Northwestern guard James Montgomery's reward for making a good impression on his new head coach was more than he ever expected, according to Yahoo Sports.

The site reports Chris Collins announced to the team before practice on Thursday that he was awarding the 6-foot-4 walk-on with a scholarship.

Video of Montgomery learning he'd be on scholarship this season became available on Tuesday afternoon when Northwestern released it on YouTube. The best part of the clip actually comes at the end when Montgomery shares the news with his mother and sister, both of whom are clearly overwhelmed with joy.
