Big Ten announces the players who’ll attend media days and the kickoff luncheon.


It’s a solid group of Big Ten talent attending the 45th annual Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon – along with the media days – headlined by Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett, Iowa Thorpe Award winner Desmond King, and Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong.

Wisconsin isn’t bringing RB Corey Clement, Michigan isn’t bringing S/LB Jabrill Peppers and Illinois isn’t bringing LB Hardy Nickerson – arguably three of the best players in the league coming into the season – but considering the star power isn’t there this season at quarterback, and, other than Barrett, there aren’t any top Heisman candidates, it’s a great list of talents.
