WR DERRELL JOHNSON-KOULIANOS SENIOR
Johnson-Koulianos earned second team All-Big Ten honors last season after making 45 receptions for 750 yards. He also got loose for a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Ohio State.
DT KARL KLUG SENIOR
Klug's 65 tackles included 13 for loss, and he forced two fumbles and broke up five passes in 2009. With all four starters returning on the defensive line, he figures to again be a disruptive force.
LT RILEY REIFF SOPHOMORE
After making 11 starts as a freshman—seven at left guard, one at right tackle and three at left tackle, where he'll start this season—the 6' 6", 300-pound Reiff has the makings of an All-America.
SS TYLER SASH JUNIOR
This consummate ball hawk produced eight turnovers last season (six interceptions and two forced fumbles). Three of Sash's picks came in a victory at Iowa State, and his total of six led the Big Ten. He racked up 203 yards on the returns, including an 86-yard touchdown against Indiana.
CB MICAH HYDE SOPHOMORE
