Rooney on why he chose Ohio State
“I chose to be a Buckeye because being a Buckeye is something different than any other school. When I first walked on campus, I felt the support, help and passion that everyone had for each other, not only in athletics but as a student as well. I love the atmosphere within the campus and the success that will come out of being a student-athlete at The Ohio State University.”
