Every Indiana fan knows the ball-handler in this picture.

His name is Calbert Cheaney, and he's only the school's—and Big Ten's—all-time scoring leader.

When he was recruited, his class was considered one of the best of all time, but Cheaney was far from the jewel of the group. He was overshadowed by a pair of McDonald's All-Americans and another hyped prospect who arrived with some baggage.

The players in this list mostly played well in college, even if they didn't do so in an Indiana uniform. Still, they all found it hard to live up to the expectations that heralded their arrivals.
