Ohio State has added two walk-ons to its men's basketball roster for the upcoming season, and both are plenty familiar with the program.
Danny Hummer, an Upper Arlington product, and Matt Lehmann, a Watterson alumnus, will join the team this season, The Dispatch has learned.
Hummer, a guard, played at Air Force for the past two seasons and made 10 appearances as a freshman. His first game came at Value City Arena against the Buckeyes in 2015, where he scored two points and had one rebound in three minutes.

The 6-foot, 175-pound Hummer played for Upper Arlington for three seasons before spending one year with the Air Force Academy Prep School. He played in one game as a sophomore and was in the team’s media guide but not listed on the roster by the end of the season.
He will be a junior and sit out a year to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.
Lehmann, who made back-to-back state title game appearances before graduating from Watterson in 2014, was set to be a preferred walk-on at West Virginia but is enrolled at Ohio State.
Their additions will give the Buckeyes three walk-ons to help provide depth to this year’s roster, which has 11 scholarship players. They join shooting guard Connor Fulton, a Utahan who was committed to be a walk-on at Butler but followed coach Chris Holtmann to Ohio State.
