Three of the five preseason honorees in the Big Ten East Division are Buckeyes.

C.J. Stroud, Jaxon Smith-Njigba and TreVeyon Henderson were among the players to receive the nod from the conference Monday, while no other program in the division had more than one selection.

Aside from the three Ohio State stars, Michigan running back Blake Corum and Michigan State wide receiver Jayden Reed also made the cut in the East Division.

In the West Division, Purdue quarterback Aidan O'Connell, Wisconsin running back Braelon Allen, Iowa linebacker Jack Campbell, Northwestern offensive tackle Peter Skoronski and Wisconsin linebacker Nick Herbig were all honored.

Stroud, the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Quarterback of the Year and Freshman of the Year in 2021, was the only unanimous selection of the bunch.
