While the ultimate goals of a Big Ten championship and deep NCAA tournament run in March remain the same, the Ohio State Buckeyes' starting lineup will look a bit different this season.
Jared Sullinger will be lacing it up for the Boston Celtics, and William Buford is trying his hands overseas.
Ironically enough, it wasn’t that long ago that Buford was considered a potential first-round draft pick before opting to return for his senior season. The NBA can be tricky like that. Clearly, college success matters, but it often comes down to more than just raw numbers and statistics.

Read on to see a ranking of this season’s projected Buckeye starters in terms of their NBA potential.
