Chell on why he became a Buckeye
“I chose to come to Ohio State because I felt it was the right fit for me. Ohio State has a lot to offer in regards to academics, athletics, tradition and a close Buckeye family. When I took my first trip out to Ohio State in the summer, I felt like I really connected well with Coach Myers and the coaching staff.”
