We are just days away from Week 0 of the college football season. B1G football will be back and fans will get to see some of the league’s best players.

For now, 247 Sports recently released 13 breakout players for the 2022 season and two B1G players are on the list. Those individuals are defensive tackle Mazi Smith of Michigan and cornerback Kalen King of Penn State.

Smith will have added responsibility for replacing Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo. Both players wreaked havoc off the edge for Michigan and are now in the NFL.

Smith has the potential to be a force on the inside for the Maize and Blue. He had the sixth-highest win rate among all B1G interior defenders with 200-plus snaps last season.

King bricks back experience for the Nittany Lions after participating in 279 snaps as a true freshman. The 4-star corner only gave up passes on 30% of passes thrown his way. King will be a full-time starter this season opposite Joey Porter Jr. for Penn State.
