The Ohio State Buckeyes are going to have their work cut out for them this year if they hope to replace the impact of Jared Sullinger.
That reality becomes even clearer when you take a look at the stat book. In the 2011-12 season, he led Ohio State in points per game, rebounds per game, blocks per game and even three-point percentage.
Thanks to that production, Sullinger is now wearing Celtic green.
I don’t mean to suggest that the Buckeyes are going to necessarily struggle this year without the big man. After all, they are No. 4 in both preseason polls for a reason.
Nevertheless, it’s going to take a team effort to replace Sullinger’s statistics. Read on to see who will lead Ohio State in each major category.
