Ohio State added its second walk-on of the month on Friday.

Citadel transfer forward Owen Spencer, a 6-foot-9 forward who hails from Cincinnati's Turpin High School, is the latest addition to the Buckeye roster, a team spokesperson confirmed to Eleven Warriors after an initial report from Adam Jardy of the Columbus Dispatch.

Spencer appeared in 23 games for the Bulldogs over the past two seasons, averaging 0.9 points and 1.8 rebounds in 7.6 minutes per game. Spencer will have three years of eligibility remaining at Ohio State.

With Zed Key and Felix Okpara being the lone two centers on the Buckeye roster, adding another big man to the fold is a logical move for Ohio State.

On June 13, Chris Holtmann and company received a commitment from 6-foot-3 guard Colby Baumann – the Buckeyes' first walk-on addition of the summer. The Texas native hails from IMG Academy and will be a true freshman at Ohio State this season.
