BREAKING: Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell Selected #2 By The Los Angeles Lakers

The first Big Ten player is off the board with the Los Angeles Lakers selecting Ohio State's D'Angelo Russell.  During his career, Russell played just one season in Columbus and was named both as the Big Ten Freshman of the Year and as a member of the All-Big Ten team.

The Lakers are still a team in a rebuilding mode, but they do have some valuable pieces including NBA superstar Kobe Bryant and former 1st Round pick Julius Randle.  Russell is the 9th player in Ohio State history to be selected in the Top 5 picks of the NBA Draft.
