The Big Ten has announced which players will attend the upcoming Media Days in Chicago: Penn State will be represented by linebackers Brandon Bell and Nyeem Wartman-White, and center Brian Gaia, along with head coach James Franklin.
The Media Days will be hosted by the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place on July 25th and 26th. This is the second consecutive year of the Media Days being held at the Hyatt.
Bell looks to be the leader of the linebacking corps in 2016 after recording 12.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks as a junior. Bell also led the team in stops with 11 in the TaxSlayer Bowl loss to Georgia.
Wartman-White is hoping for a return to his 2014 form after missing nearly all of the 2015 season due to injury. The senior already has his undergraduate degree in telecommunications (earned in December), and should be a starter on Linebacker U. in 2016.
Gaia, a junior, was the only offensive lineman to start all 13 games last season (at guard). This will be the third season of Gaia playing a new position, after starting his Penn State career at defensive tackle.
Check back for details on Big Ten Media Days once they conclude on July 26th.
