Preseason All-Big 12 team
The preseason all Big 12 team doesn’t include any West Virginia players, which is not particularly surprising considering the turnover heading into 2013.
The team is selected by the media.
What is interesting is that RB Charles Sims was named the preseason newcomer of the year. Sims is eligible to play immediately as a graduate student and has just one year left.
The preseason poll will be released tomorrow.
