Ohio State has confirmed to Eleven Warriors that Chris Holtmann has added a pair of local products to the roster for the upcoming 2017-18 season. 

Upper Arlington native Danny Hummer and Bishop Watterson alumnus Matt Lehmann are set to become Buckeyes for the upcoming season. 

Hummer, who played three years at Upper Arlington, has spent the last two seasons at Air Force, where he played in 10 games as a freshman. His first career game with the Falcons came against Ohio State at the Schottenstein Center, where he scored two points and collected one rebound in three minutes of action. 

Hummer is also the Upper Arlington career-leader in assists and steals and was named a captain in his junior and senior seasons with the Golden Bears. As a transfer, Hummer will have to sit out the 2017-18 season due to NCAA rules. 

Lehmann is a 2014 graduate of Watterson, where he appeared in back-to-back state title games. He was set to be a preferred walk-on for West Virginia, but is currently enrolled at Ohio State according to a report from The Columbus Dispatch, who first reported the news. 

Ohio State will now have three walk-ons on the roster, as Connor Fulton announced his commitment to join the Buckeyes as a walk-on in late July.
