A surprise visitor came to yesterday's basketball practice to see walk-on point guard, Andrew Dakich. It ends not how you would imagine and below is what they posted on Twitter.

Dakich earned it and his father and ESPN commentator, Dan Dakich, shared his thoughts and appreciation to the program.
Best decision we made as parents was sending AD to play for Coach Beilein and Michigan! Thank u for allowing him be apart of a great program https://t.co/rW1THNSXYN— Dan Dakich (@dandakich) January 10, 2017
Dakich’s reaction is priceless and what a great job by Michigan in pulling off the surprise. He has been forced into action due to injuries on the roster since he has been in Ann Arbor, but is redshirting this season.
Still, it is cool to see hard work rewarded.
