Danny Peters spent the 2005-06 season on the Ohio State sidelines as a student manager. With numbers low at the guard position at the start of the 2006-07 campaign, Peters, who played his high school basketball at nearby New Albany (Ohio) High School as a senior in 2004-05, was issued a uniform and added to the active roster. Over the last three seasons, Peters has helped prepare Buckeye guards Mike Conley Jr., Jamar Butler and P.J. Hill for game action. Peters already has lettered four times, once as a manager. He hopes to pursue a career in teaching (special education) and coaching. His father, Dan Peters, a former assistant and video coordinator at Ohio State, is now the director of basketball operations at the University of Akron.
