Most of them do. It takes a pretty good player to 'walk on' in a good program. Some places encourage it. Texas A&M has a special teams group called The 12th Man that consists entirely of walk on students. They normally only play at home games and some of them actually earn scholarships for follow on years.

And I had a friend who 'walked on' in the middle of the season. He was complaining to some of his buddies about how bad the team was doing and someone looked at him and said, "If you can do any better, why don't you play?" He walked up to the coach at practice and said, 'Can I help?' Coach looked at him and turned to one of the assistants, "Time him in a 40" My buddy ran the 40 and the assistant coach showed the stop watch to the coach. Coach said, "Get him a uniform, he's a wide receiver."
