Watch Michigan award Andrew Dakich scholarship in unique way

It’s easy to enjoy those touching walk-on-receiving-scholarship viral videos.

It’s even easier when a team does it in a way that you’ve never seen.

Michigan accomplished just that in a team meeting Monday, when it used university compliance officers to award guard Andrew Dakich a scholarship.

Here’s how it went down:

The officers interrupted the meeting to tell Dakich that his “conduct on campus is related to a number of ongoing investigations,” and that his “involvement in such matters will require your immediate presence in front of the university’s compliance office,” before breaking the good news.

Watch it in the tweet below, and get Dakich and his father’s reaction in the tweets at the bottom of the post.
