Report: Andrew Dakich transferring to Ohio State

Dylan Burkhardt

Former Michigan walk-on Andrew Dakich will finish his career at Ohio State.

This will be the third year in a row that Michigan will see a graduate transfer playing for another Big Ten team after Max Bielfeldt transferred to Indiana and Spike Albrecht transferred to Purdue.

Unlike Albrecht and Bielfeldt, Dakich was a walk-on at Michigan rather than a scholarship player. Dakich sat out the 2016-17 season as a redshirt, an option that John Beilein helped him pursue to finish his college career elsewhere.

Dakich had originally announced his intentions to transfer to Quinnipiac, but the coaching and roster changes in Ohio State appear to have opened an opportunity for him to play in Columbus.

The Buckeyes only have one point guard on the roster, 6-foot-1 junior CJ Jackson after former starting point guard JaQuan Lyle left the team this spring.

    JB must be beside himself losing a grad transfer he has nutured for four years for the third time to an in conference foe. I may be wrong but I don’t think any other B1G foe has lost one Grad Transfer to an in conference foe.

    I understand completely why he would go there, OSU’s roster is so depleted he has a good chance to play some quality minutes. A graduate degree from OSU is not that bad.

    So I’ll take this as a sign that Holtmann is desperate and superstitious – after seeing that grad transfers from Michigan have won B1G championships in each of the past two seasons, he decided that he needed one for himself.

    Unfortunately for him, Mark Donnal’s new team has a better shot at the 2018 B1G title than tOSU does…

    Why would anyone that played four years at Michigan go to OSU?
