Which OSU player (former or current) do you think was overrated in college, meaning he got too much attention/underwhelming in terms of recruiting ranking expectations/hype/accolades/playing time, whatever, while at OSU?

And, which player do you think was underrated, meaning he didn't get enough attention or love from the media, was undervalued, didn't play enough, etc.?

I'll go with...

Overrated: Braxton Miller

(freak athlete, but for all the hype, I still haven't seen a consistently great passing performance against a good defense. I actually think that will happen this coming season. Don't get me wrong...I'm a Braxton fan, and wouldn't trade him for anybody else, but this is in the context of his hype and recruiting ranking. I'm just opining from the throwing the ball aspect, he is a Quarterback after all.)

Underrated: Will Allen

(always making plays, and is pretty clutch (NC State game)...still is underappreciated in the NFL)
