Henrick on why he chose Ohio State 
“The first time I stepped on campus I could instantly feel the energy and passion that surrounded me. At first I thought ‘there is no way that this is real’. Everyone I met expressed their love for the school and that’s when I realized this passion isn’t just a front, but it is something deeper and runs through the roots of the school. Also, the coaching staff creates a brotherhood atmosphere, which is something I personally thrive in. Another selling point is that the school feels smaller than it really is. You are given all the tools and resources to be successful. These are just some of the reasons why I chose to attend Ohio State – the list can go on forever. But, I am very excited to get on campus and be a part of the culture.”
