Kevin Durant Is A Fan Of Ohio State's Malik Hooker

Kevin Durant answers questions at the podium.

The Golden State Warriors star is a fan of the former Buckeye standout.

Kevin Durant is a football fan.

The Golden State Warriors star grew up rooting for the Washington Redskins and is often seen on the sidelines at NFL games in the fall.

Durant attended the University of Texas, so he's experienced one of the best rivalries in college football, too.

Today, the Warriors' forward was asked who he'd take with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft, since it belongs to his local team, the San Francisco 49ers.

His answer: Ohio State safety Malik Hooker.

Urban Meyer has gotten LeBron James and members of the Cleveland Cavaliers to show up for big Buckeye games.

Perhaps we could see Durant on the sideline of an Ohio State game sometime next season.
