As crazy as it may sound, college football media days are right around the corner. With preparations taking place, the Big Ten has released the details of who will be at the Hilton Chicago July 24 and 25.

The Big Ten will be well represented with 19 All-Big Ten selections showing up for the event. The headliner is Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, who is a legitimate Heisman candidate entering his junior season. He is also a big reason why many have predicted the Buckeyes to play in this year's national championship game.

The complete list of players representing each team are as follows:



Christian Kirksey, Sr., LB

James Morris, Sr., LB

Brett Van Sloten, Sr., OL



Devin Gardner, Jr., QB

Thomas Gordon, Sr., S

Taylor Lewan, Sr., LT


Michigan State

Max Bullough, Sr., LB

Darqueze Dennard, Sr., CB

Blake Treadwell, Sr., OG



Ra’Shede Hageman, Sr., DT

Donnell Kirkwood, Jr., RB

Brock Vereen, Sr., S



Quincy Enunwa, Sr., WR

Ciante Evans, Sr., CB

Taylor Martinez, Sr., QB



Kain Colter, Sr., QB

Venric Mark, Sr., RB

Tyler Scott, Sr., DE



Tim Kynard, Sr., DL

Corey Lewis, Sr., OT

Nathan Scheelhaase, Sr., QB



Mitch Ewald, Sr., K

Greg Heban, Sr., S

Kofi Hughes, Sr., WR


Ohio State

Jack Mewhort, Sr., OT

Braxton Miller, Jr., QB

Bradley Roby, Jr., CB


Penn State

Glenn Carson, Sr., LB

John Urschel, Sr., G

Malcolm Willis, Sr., S



Ricardo Allen, Sr., CB

Bruce Gaston, Sr., DT

Gabe Holmes, Sr., TE



Jared Abbrederis, Sr., WR

Chris Borland, Sr., LB

James White, Sr., RB


Additional Notes

All 12 head coaches will be in attendance, including two first-timers in Purdue's Darrell Hazell and Wisconsin's Gary Andersen.

Only five teams will bring their starting quarterback, which is far fewer than the eight that the SEC is bringing to its media days July 16-18. Usually quarterbacks are well-represented during media days, but that isn't the case this year for the Big Ten.

A total of 32 seniors will be in attendance. That includes nine teams that are bringing nothing but four- or five-year players. The experience-laden Big Ten has 10 teams returning at least 13 starters.
