Buckeyes' Barrett, Iowa's King lead Big Ten preseason picks

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (AP) -

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett and Iowa cornerback Desmond King highlight the preseason all-Big Ten selections.

Barrett was selected to the East team along with Michigan defensive back Jabrill Peppers, Michigan State defensive lineman Malik McDowell, Ohio State linebacker Raekwon McMillan and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley by a media panel. Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard and defensive back Desmond King, Northwestern running back Justin Jackson and linebacker Anthony Walker, and Wisconsin running back Corey Clement were West picks.

Barrett -- 15-2 as a starter -- enters his junior season in the top spot after losing out to Cardale Jones last year and then replacing him.

King, the 2015 Thorpe Award winner as the country's top defensive back, leads a team that went 12-2 and 8-0 in conference play.
