A walk-on no longer.
For his entire three-year Ohio State career, Buckeye forward Harrison Hookfin has had to pay his own way as a walk-on. But as of Sunday, that's no longer the case as Hookfin is officially on scholarship.
Chris Holtmann announced the news to the team in the locker room following Ohio State's 61-56 win over Penn State, and the team went properly nuts.
Hookfin has appeared in 15 games throughout his Buckeye career, scoring eight points on 12 attempts and pulling down 11 rebounds and contributing to the team and the locker room as one of the more veteran players on the roster.
Upon hearing the news of his scholarship, Hookfin led the team in their postgame chant.
The Buckeyes and Hookfin will return to action on Tuesday when they host IUPUI in an added non-conference game. It will be Hookfin's first game as a scholarship member of the Ohio State basketball team.
