Taylor’s report says that Chugunov will be on scholarship, but Eleven Warriors reported that Chugunov may not be available until the 2019 season:
An Ohio State spokesperson said the Buckeyes “don’t have any additions to the roster at this time,” and Ohio State is currently at its full allotment of 85 scholarships for the 2018 season. Taylor, however, reported that Chugunov has not yet enrolled, which could mean that Chugunov will join the team for the 2019 season.
