Get Ready for Big Ten Football: Top 20 Players Ranked
With Big Ten media day just around the corner, the excitement for Big Ten football is at an all-time high. To add to the anticipation, three 247Sports college football analysts, Blake Brockermeyer, Chris Hummer, and Robbie Weinstein, have come together to rank the top 20 players in the Big Ten.
This season, the Big Ten is looking stronger than ever. In the East division, powerhouses Ohio State and Michigan are considered top contenders for the national championship. Penn State is also expected to be a force to be reckoned with, boasting a talented roster.
Meanwhile, in the West division, we can expect some exciting matchups as the Luke Fickell era kicks off in Wisconsin. Iowa is determined to make it back to the conference title game, while Illinois aims to build upon their successful 8-win season last year. Keep an eye on Minnesota too, as they could play a significant role in determining the outcome of the West division.
The list of top players in the conference is nothing short of impressive. Ohio State and Penn State dominate the rankings, with five players each making the cut. Let’s take a look at the Buckeyes who made the list:
No. 20 – Running Back TreVeyon Henderson
Despite a foot injury last season, TreVeyon Henderson is known for his exceptional skills as a running back. If he can stay healthy this fall, he will undoubtedly be one of the top players in the Big Ten.
No. 16 – Edge J.T. Tuimoloau
J.T. Tuimoloau was Ohio State’s standout pass rusher last season and is considered one of the best edge rushers in the conference. With his size, athleticism, and power, Tuimoloau has what it takes to be a dominant force on the field in 2023.
No. 9 – Linebacker Tommy Eichenberg
Tommy Eichenberg was a star on Ohio State’s defense last season, earning a first-team all-Big Ten selection. He is expected to be one of the key players on the Buckeyes’ roster this year, and his performance will be crucial for the team’s success.
No. 7 – Wide Receiver Emeka Egbuka
Emeka Egbuka is not only one of the top receivers in the conference but also one of the best in college football. He will play a vital role in Ohio State’s offense, using his speed and reliable hands to make big plays.
No. 1 – Wide Receiver Marvin Harrison Jr.
It comes as no surprise that Marvin Harrison Jr. tops the list of the best players in the Big Ten. With his exceptional talent, he has the potential to go down in history as one of the greatest receivers to ever wear the Scarlet and Gray.
As we gear up for the Big Ten football season, these players will undoubtedly bring excitement and skill to the field. Stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming season!
