The Ohio State Buckeyes recently welcomed freshman Harrison Hookfin to their roster as a walk-on for the 2018 to 2019 season. The new forward is the 14th player on the roster and is set to start playing once the NCAA clears him.

During Hookfin’s junior and senior year, he underwent an advantageous growth spurt and now reaches a height of 6’5. Weighing 220lbs and named the Athlete of the Week by the Drayton Daily News, Hookfin has a promising career as a college basketball player.

Harrison Hookfin played for the Warriors high school basketball team in his hometown of Lebanon, Ohio. After the Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann professed his desire to increase the player size of his roster, Kyle Davis discovered Hookfin, who is now #42 on the Buckeye’s team.

In his interview with the Dayton Daily News, Hookfin remarked that his father, who pushes him to be better, is his greatest influence. In addition, he named Lebron James as his favorite pro athlete because the basketball superstar is a great role model. While Hookfin is also pursuing a college career in basketball, he also plans to enter medical school and study to be a doctor.

Playing Ability

Ohio State’s new forward played a pivotal role in his high school basketballs team’s success. Averaging 14.2 points per game and shooting 52.2 percent from the floor, Hookfin helped his team finish the season with a 14-8 advantage. Not to mention, 34.3 percent of his successful shots were from the 3-point range, and he acquired 7.1 rebounds for the Warriors during his last high school season.
