Fourteen players from the Big Ten were named to ESPN’s Newcomer Impact Rankings list released on Monday. The list ranks a combined group of all incoming freshman, graduate transfers, sit-out transfers now eligible, and junior college transfers who will play this season. It lists the Top-80 along with a “Next 10” as well.
The 14 players from the Big Ten are:
- No. 15 Joey Hauser, Michigan State Spartans
- No. 29 Adam Miller, Illinois Fighting Illini
- No. 35 Hunter Dickinson, Michigan Wolverines
- No. 46 Khristian Lander, Indiana Hoosiers

- No. 74, Mike Smith, Michigan Wolverines

- Next 10: Andre Curbelo, Illinois Fighting Illini; Cliff Omoruyi, Rutgers Scarlet Knights
So for anyone keeping track, that is two players each for Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, and Nebraska along with one each for Indiana, Minnesota, Purdue, and Rutgers.
