The 5-11, 260-pound Hamdan is a native of Mason, Ohio, who walked on to the Ohio State football program in January 2018. He earned all-state honors during his junior and senior seasons, and also qualified for the state tournament in wrestling his senior year.
“I want to shout out my unit,” Hamdan said. “Thank you guys for getting me through everything. All my old heads — B.B. (Landers), Chase (Young), Davon (Hamilton) and Jashon (Cornell). I want to thank coach Mick(ey Marotti) for getting me right in the weight room every day.
“Let’s get this next Saturday. Go Bucks!”
