The redshirt junior linebacker is tabbed for the preseason honor by a media panel. This is the first year the conference is offering the list.

CHICAGO -- The preseason honors keep rolling in for Penn State linebacker Mike Mauti. Already on the watch lists for the Nagurski and Butkus Awards, the redshirt junior was among 12 athletes selected to the Big Ten's inaugural Players to Watch list.

Mauti is the only Nittany Lion on the list, which is voted on by a media panel. Criteria for the award call for the media to tab five players each from the new Legends and Leaders divisions. But there were seven in the Leaders division this year (which includes Penn State) due to ties.
