College Football's Big Men On Campus: Big Ten West

Early season practices have started all around the country and the first week of the college football season is quickly approaching. Campuses all around are getting excited. In the Big Ten West Division, some big names are looking to break out from the competition in the 2021-22 season.

Brandon Peters- Illinois QB

The Senior quarterback from Avon, Indiana was selected as a member of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm watch list.

Last season he started five games for the Fighting Illini and threw for 429 yards and three touchdowns in 2020. Peters will look to lead Illinois to improve on their 2-6 record last season.


Tyler Goodson- Iowa RB

Tyler Goodson, comes into the 2021-22 season looking to better his stats from last season. In only eight games, Goodson ran for 762 yards and had seven touchdowns.

Last season he was voted as a member of the First-Team All-Big Ten by the coaches. Expect Goodson to be the engine that runs the Hawkeye offense in in the Fall.


Mohamed Ibrahim - Minnesota RB

The reigning Big Ten running back of the year award recipient will aim to take the Golden Gophers over the hump in the 2021-22 season.

A rising star around campus and the nation, Ibrahim averaged over 100 yards rushing per game last season. In his Senior season, expect #24 to make some noise on the field in Minnesota and beyond.


Adrian Martinez- Nebraska QB

As the Junior year team captain, Martinez finds himself on the Maxwell Award watch list for the third consecutive year. Last season he aired the ball for over 1,000 yards.

With this being Martinez's third season behind center, the Cornhuskers should be taking a step forward and improving on their 3-5 record from last season.


Cam Porter- Northwestern RB

The Sophomore running back was the team's leading rusher for the 2020-21 season. Northwestern has always been known to use a run heavy offense. It is no surprise that with Porter at the helm, that will be the case this upcoming season.

The Cincinnati, Ohio native will be the focal point for the Wildcats offense and if he can get enough support, the sky is the limit for the young running back.


David Bell- Purdue WR

  • Twitter: @DB3LL

The 2021 Biletnikoff Award watch list member expects to make a monumental impact for the Boilermakers' offense this season.

Last year in six games, Bell reeled in 625 yards and eight touchdowns.  In 2019, he hauled in over 1,000 yards with a full slate of games. If Purdue can get a full season in barring any COVID-19 cancellations, Bell will improve on his numbers and increase his recognition around the country.


Kendric Pryor- Wisconsin WR

  • Instagram: @kpryor3

Last season, Pryor was unable to perform at the high level he expects due to injuries that plagued him. This season he comes back healthy and ready to make an immediate impact for the wide receiver corps in Madison.

The Senior wide receiver, when healthy will get a hefty dose of tosses his way and can instantly change the dynamic of the Badgers' offense in the 2021-22 campaign. A Week 1 matchup against Penn State will show just how good Pryor can be this season.
