Report: Former Michigan walk-on PG Andrew Dakich to transfer to Ohio State

Dakich, the son of ESPN analyst and former IN basketball player Dan Dakich, redshirted the 2016-17 season so he could be a graduate transfer for this upcoming campaign, per Michigan's athletics' website.

Dakich, who red-shirted a year ago to preserve his eligibility as a grad transfer, will play for Ohio State in the 2017-18 season, per ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

He originally committed to play at Quinnipiac after graduating from MI in April.

Dakich originally had plans to spend a graduate transfer year at Quinnipiac, but things have now changed as new Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann returns a roster that features just one true scholarship point guard.

The son of ESPN analyst Dan Dakich, Andrew Dakich joined MI as a walk-on in 2013 and eventually found himself in the rotation the following two seasons when Michigan's backcourt was ravaged by injury in each year.

Dakich graduated from MI in the spring and didn't play this past season, preserving his eligibility for a fifth year.

The product of Zionsville, Ind., is a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree.

Two years ago, former MI forward Max Bielfeldt spent his final year of eligibility at Indiana.
