regardless of who you may say, it probably will not be a dark-horse candidate for those perusing this website, as we are all big osu fans. but who is your dark-horse candidate that people outside the extreme fans of this fan base would not know.

last year's candidate I think was Dallan Hayden and (lowkey) Tommy Eichenberg. I def didnt expect a freshman RB to look so top tier and I didnt expect Tommy to have a better season than guys like Raekwon McMillan. 

For this year, I think Davison Igbinosun is my #1 breakout candidate. Obviously he played well already, but OSU is a different level than Ole Miss and his play will be magnified. Not only do i think he will be excellent for us, i think he will be a household name across the country as a sure fire future top 20 pick, and will have the name cache of corners like Denzel Ward, Derek Stingley, Jeff Okudah, etc.

I also think Carnell Tate will end up having a big role in the offense.
