The Ohio State Buckeyes have a lot of talent on the roster, including a lot of players who don't see a lot of playing time. Many of these guys could start at most schools outside of the major conferences but chose to be a part of a national title contending team.
These sacrifices will eventually pay off for the team and the players themselves if they are willing to stay the course. The Buckeyes have faced a lot of adversity lately so these players are tested more than most teams in this regard.
2012 will be a year the Buckeyes will be expected to contend for at least the Big Ten championship, as they have in 2011 despite all of the young players and suspensions. This has been as close to a rebuilding year as you can get at Ohio State, who is used to competing for BCS bowls every season.
Storm Klein is a player who will be given a larger role in 2012, and there are four others who you should be familiar with.
Their names will be called a lot next season.
