COLUMBUS, Ohio – A quartet of former Buckeyes are set to continue their professional playing careers during the upcoming season. Jake Hanes, Maxime Hervoir, Blake Leeson and Nicolas Szerszen will compete in four different European leagues.
Team: Saint-Nazaire VB Atlantique
League: French Ligue B
During their days as Buckeyes, this group combined for six All-America recognitions and were named to the All-MIVA Team 11 times. Leeson and Szerszen laid hands on back-to-back NCAA national championships while Hervoir started for the ’17 title squad and Hanes was a redshirt that season.
Additional Buckeyes could sign professional contracts in the coming weeks.
