COLUMBUS, Ohio – Sunday, 38 current and former Buckeye student-athletes officially received their Ohio State degrees. The list of graduates includes national champions, All-Americans and academic standouts.

Joshua Perry and Michael Thomas helped the football Buckeyes to the 2015 College Football Playoff national championship. Perry was a standout on the field, in the classroom and in the community, earning All-Big Ten honors in 2015 and 2014. A finalist for the Lott IMPACT Award and Senior CLASS Award, he participated in a volunteer service trip with Soles 4 Souls in Costa Rica last summer. Thomas, the top receiver for the Buckeyes in 2015, was also an All-Big Ten selection for the Scarlet and Gray.

Sami Jurofsky helped the women’s rowing team to three consecutive national titles while winning individual titles with the First Varsity Eight as a senior and Second Varsity Eight as a junior. Jurofsky was the coxswain of the Buckeyes’ undefeated 1V8 team that upset top-ranked California on its way to gold at the 2015 NCAA Championships.

Greyson McCaig earned five All-America awards for the pistol team, helping the Scarlet and Gray to back-to-back national titles in 2014 and 2015. Last season, McCaig claimed First Team All-America accolades for the first time in both free and standard pistol.

Elizabeth Campbell was a two-time All-American and six-rotation asset for the women’s volleyball team, helping the Buckeyes to Sweet 16 appearances in both 2014 and 2015. This past season, she posted 478 kills on 1,223 attempts, 286 digs and 75 blocks. Her kills and attempts totals both rank inside the Top 20 all-time in Ohio State history for a single season.
