Former Ohio State Walk-On Mark Titus Says Greg Oden Is Returning To Buckeyes As Manager

Greg Oden is one of many top NBA Draft picks to bust, after injuries derailed the talented center's career, but fans in Columbus still appreciate the season he spent with the Buckeyes. In 2006-07, Oden averaged 15.7 points and 9.6 rebounds per game, leading OSU to the national title game, where they fell to Florida. He had 25 points, 12 boards, and four blocks in the losing effort.

After spending last season playing for the Chinese Basketball Association's Jiangsu Dragons, Oden will reportedly head back to Ohio State to finish up his degree and act as a manager on the basketball team. Former Ohio State walk-on and Grantland writer Mark Titus shared the news on Twitter.

If Ohio State doesn't clean up in next year's manager games, assuming Oden takes part, something's very wrong.
