Luke Wollet became the third former Kent State football star to receive a shot at the NFL after going undrafted when the New Orleans Saints invited him to mini-camp on Sunday.
Wollet, a 6-foot, 198-pound former Poland Seminary High School star, became the third Kent State player in the past 14 years to be chosen All-Mid-American Conference three times by earning Third Team recognition as a senior in 2013. He led the Flashes with 78 tackles and picked off a pair of passes.
Wollet had 12 career interceptions, including a pick in the end zone in the closing moments of a 31-24 victory at Bowling Green in 2012 that gave Kent State the MAC East Division title - its first football championship of any kind since 1972.
Wollet joins defensive tackle Roosevelt Nix (Atlanta) and cornerback Darius Polk (Indianapolis) as undrafted KSU players that have latched on with NFL teams. Speedster Dri Archer was selected in the third round by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
