Justin Jackson on Big Ten Players to Watch List


As Big Ten Media days get underway today, the conference put out a "Players To Watch" list. Making the list was rising sophomore running back Justin Jackson.

It's another relatively meaningless watch list, but nevertheless it highlights some of the top players in the conference. The full list is as follows:

EAST DIVISION: Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State Shilique Calhoun, DE, Michigan State Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State Anthony Zettel, DT, Penn State

WEST DIVISION* Drew Ott, DE, Iowa Maliek Collins, DT, Nebraska De’Mornay Pierson-El, WR, Nebraska Justin Jackson, RB, Northwestern Michael Caputo, S, Wisconsin Corey Clement, RB, Wisconsin *Additional honoree due to tie

Jackson rushed for 1187 yards and 10 touchdowns on 245 attempts last year. He also caught 22 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown. He's also on the Maxwell Award Watch List. It's been an interesting offseason for watch lists
