Ohio State set a new record by honoring 799 athletes, including 61 football players and 11 men's basketball players, as scholar-athletes, the school announced on Monday afternoon.

For reference, the athletes department had 647 scholar-athletes last year, 674 the year prior and 692 the year before that. To be recognized as an honoree, each of them had to have carried at least a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average through the fall semester and be enrolled as a full-time student.

It was the first time being named as a scholar-athlete for 310 of them, the second time for 242, the third time for 134, the fourth time for 94, the fifth time for 17 and the sixth time for two athletes. 

Forty-seven athletes were named as carrying perfect 4.0 GPAs. Harry Miller, a starting offensive lineman studying mechanical engineering, is among them.

A full list of those honored as scholar-athletes can be found on Ohio State's website.
