CHICAGO — The B1G doesn’t churn out a list of preseason media predictions.

Still, 10 players received a little preseason love from the conference.

The B1G announced the 10 players that cracked the preseason watch list, five of which were from the West and five of which were from the East.

Here are the guys who made the cut:


Tegray Scales, Sr., LB, IND

J.T. Barrett, Sr., QB, OSU

Tyquan Lewis, Sr., DE, OSU

Saquon Barkley, Jr., RB, PSU

Trace McSorley, Sr., QB, PSU


Josey Jewell, Sr., LB, IOWA

Goodwin Igwebuike, Sr., S, NU

Justin Jackson, Sr., RB, NU

Jack Cichy, Sr., LB, WIS

Troy Fumagalli, Sr., TE, WIS

Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin all had two honorees apiece while Indiana and Iowa each had one.

The only non-senior that made the cut was Saquon Barkley, who is projected as a top-five pick in next year’s NFL draft.

B1G Media Days will begin on Monday and conclude on Tuesday in Chicago.
