Malik Hooker: I’ll be Back for 2017

By Jim Baird | AM Football Briefing | Tuesday, November 29

Malik Hooker — I’ll be Back for 2017: Malik Hooker’s pick-six got Ohio State on the board during The Game Saturday. With six interceptions on the season — returning a school-record three for touchdowns — it would be tough to fault the first year starting safety for thinking about turning pro at the end of the season. But the redshirt Sophomore doesn’t appear in any rush to leave, telling Tim May Monday that, “Right now it’s 100 percent sure I’m coming back to Ohio State.” Read the story here.

Wishing all those injured in the senseless attack yesterday at Ohio State a very speedy recovery. Get well soon.
