Ohio State offensive tackle Thayer Munford and wide receivers Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson were three of the five players mentioned for the East, along with Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. and Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson.

All three have earned preseason All-American honors from various outlets, including Athlon Sports, Phil Steele, Sporting News and the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum, Minnesota running back Mohamed Ibrahim, Northwestern safety Brandon Joseph, Purdue wide receiver David Bell and Wisconsin linebacker Jack Sanborn were named for the West, meanwhile.
