I would think Lewis would remain with his role of sixth man, move Cook to the 2, Ivan Harris to the 3 and insert this Juco transfer to the 4. Starting 6'7", 6'9" and 7' across the front line would do some serious damage within the Big 10.

Ivan Harris on the bench as a 6th man.

1.) Jamar Butler for obvious reasons.
2.) Ron Lewis. He is a scorer plain and simple and his ability to get to the hole is under utilized. I personally think that Ron Lewis and JJ were the keys to beating Georgetown. Buckeyes needed to use their abilities to penetrate to get the GU big men into foul trouble. I like Lewis alot as the 2.
3.) Cook. This kid can score from anywhere. He will bring the posterizing dunks that the Buckeyes have been missing since Jimmy Jackson and he is the best jump shooter to come out of the Dayton area... EVER.
4.) Othello Hunter. This kid is a stud and has the size and the physical mentality that we lacked at the 4 last year. You don't use a scholarship slot on a JuCo transfer so that he can sit on the bench.
5.) Oden. We only get to use him for one year, better get 40 minutes per game from him!

I like Butler, Lewis, Cook, Hunter, Oden.

I am going to use this post to say what a great all around kid Greg Oden is. ESPN did a 5 min spot on him at halftime of the Mc'D's All American game. He is a well-spoken, humble young man. He is also an excellent student who loves the books. Outstanding recruit! Outstanding kid!

The kid looks about 40 years old.
