The Big Ten Conference announced the lineup of players that will speak at its Media Days on July 26-27.
The Big Ten has announced the lineup of players that will appear at the conference's preseason media days and annual kickoff luncheon, as ESPN's Adam Rittenberg writes. All 12 schools in the conference are sending three players apiece to the event, which takes place on July 26-27 in Chicago.
While only seven quarterbacks will be speaking with the press, both Illinois and Northwestern are sending their top signal callers. For the Fighting Illini, junior quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, senior defensive end Michael Buchanan and senior center Graham Pocic will be appearing.
The Wildcats are sending junior quarterback Kain Colter, senior offensive guard Brian Mulroe and senior linebacker David Nwabusi to the media days. In his post, Rittenberg notes that Scheelhaase and Nwabusi are particularly adept at speaking with meda members.
