Former Ohio State basketball legend, Clark Kellogg, will be seeing a change of scenery this coming hoops season. “Special K” will remain a basketball analyst with CBS but it has been announced that he will switch roles with Greg Anthony. Kellogg will return to the studio show, a job he previously manned for sixteen years before joining Jim Nantz doing lead game analyst in 2008. Kellogg will still be doing games during the regular season, but once March Madness rolls around, he’ll jump back to the studio.
Kellogg is endeared by faithful Buckeye hoops fans for his spectacular play from 1980-1982. He averaged a double-double in both of his seasons in Columbus, garnering notable accomplishments such as being included on the All-Big Ten Conference Team and conference MVP.
Kellogg left OSU for the NBA after his sophomore season and was subsequently taken with the 8th overall pick by the Indiana Pacers. Four years after an extremely impressive rookie campaign, of which netted him All-Rookie Team honors, Kellogg was forced to retire due to chronic knee problems.
Since his retirement, Kellogg has remained busy. In 1996 he earned his masters degree from Ohio State in management and his current list of occupations includes Indiana Pacers color analyst for road games, member of OSU board of trustees, his many roles as analyst for CBS’s college hoops, and even making annual appearances in the NBA 2K video game series.
Buckeye fans everywhere should be happy to ear about the move for Kellogg, moving to a position that better utilizes his talent, and we’re all excited to hear him announce the Ohio State Buckeyes as 2013-2014 NCAA champs.
