Like the SEC, the Big 12 Wednesday unveiled its list of players who will attend its upcoming media days. Unlike the SEC, the quarterback position will be well-represented.
On the Big 12’s list of attendees, eight of the 10 teams in the conference will bring their starting quarterbacks to the July 18-19 event in Dallas. The lone holdouts? TCU and Texas, who, in fairness, have multiple players engaged in competitions at the position that will extend into summer camp beginning next month.
All but one Big 12 team will have at least three players, along with their head coaches, in attendance, with five — Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, West Virginia — hauling in four players apiece. The lone team not at least at that three-player minimum? Scandal-plagued Baylor, which will be represented by interim head coach Jim Grobe and just two players — cornerback Ryan Reid and quarterback Seth Russell.
Anyway, below is the complete list of attendees:
