As much as Ohio State fans love Aaron Craft, opposing coaches seem to as well.
Last year, Craft was named to the All-Big Ten first team by the coaches, but only the second squad by the media.
Furthermore, CBS Sports recently asked a list of coaches anonymously which player they would most like to add to their team in the entire country if they could choose one. Craft received the fourth highest amount of votes behind Marcus Smart, Doug McDermott and Andrew Wiggins.
There is a reason Craft is so coveted by these opposing coaches. His defense is unparalleled, his intangibles are something every team could use and he is a better offensive option than he gets credit for (although his jump shot definitely needs improvement).
Craft was a member of the All-Big Ten team as a junior last year when his backcourt competition included Trey Burke and Victor Oladipo. There is certainly a strong chance he will be back on the team as a senior, especially with those names no longer in the college game.
Look for Craft to be named the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2013-14 and improve somewhat on his offensive game. That could certainly be more than enough to land a spot on the squad.
