A list was made with the Top 10 returning players from the B1G heading into the 2022 season by Nick Kosko of 247Sports. Even though a lot of talent left, there’s still plenty to go around this year.

The B1G East had more players on the list compared to the B1G West. Ohio State, Wisconsin, Purdue, Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, Penn State, and Indiana all had returning players that made the list. Players on both sides of the ball made the list as well. It was a good mix of upperclassmen that have led the way for their respective teams, and a couple of newcomers who really had breakout years in 2021.

Here are the returning B1G players that made 247Sports list:

  • No. 1: C.J. Stroud, QB Ohio State
  • No. 2: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR Ohio State
  • No. 3: Braelon Allen, RB Wisconsin
  • No. 4: Aidan O’Connell, QB Purdue
  • No. 5: Blake Corum, RB Michigan
  • No. 6: Nick Herbig, OLB Wisconsin
  • No. 7: Jayden Reed, WR Michigan State
  • No. 8: Jack Campbell, LB Iowa
  • No. 9: Parker Washington, WR Penn State
  • No. 10: Tiawan Mullen, CB Indiana
