In every single college basketball season there are overachievers who play much better than they were projected to before the year started.
For Ohio State someone like Shannon Scott fit that bill in 2012-13. For Scott’s first year-and-a-half on campus he was simply seen as the point guard Thad Matta elected to recruit instead of Trey Burke, but an impressive defensive performance down the stretch earned him more playing time and recognition.
While Aaron Craft and LaQuinton Ross will be expected to shoulder much of the load this season, there will likely be some overachievers wearing Scarlet and Gray to help them out. Read on to see the biggest candidates.
