Wisconsin continues to garner top accolades in the preseason and earlier this morning the Big Ten conference announced their list of players to watch list and included two players from Wisconsin amongst the 10 players named.
Representing Wisconsin on this list are RB Montee Ball and LB Chris Borland. Ball is the reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and joins Michigan's Denard Robinson as past winners of the award on this watch list.
Borland was a first team all-Big Ten player last season and is joined by Kawann Short (DT Ohio State), John Simon (DL Ohio State), and Ball as fellow fist team all-Big Ten players from the Leaders Division. Ohio State QB Braxton Miller was the othe player named to the list from that division.
In the Legends division the conference named QB Denard Robinson (Michigan), OT Taylor Lewan (Michigan), CB Johnny Adams (Michigan State), DE William Gholston (Michigan State), and RB Rex Burkhead (Nebraska) as the players to watch.
This is a list that's in just it's 2nd year as is selected by a media panel and can only consist of five players from each division.
