Wide receiver Stanley Morgan Jr., defensive lineman Mick Stoltenberg and offensive lineman Jerald Foster will represent Nebraska at Big Ten Media Days. The three seniors will join coach Scott Frost in Chicago July 23 and 24.

Frost is set to take the podium Monday at 12 p.m. CT. The Nebraska players will then be available to the media later that afternoon. They'll join all 14 of the Big Ten's head football coaches and players to answer questions about the offseason, season expectations, and more.

Morgan, Stoltenberg, and Foster are not much of a surprise pick for Big Ten Media Days. All three are returning starters and are expected to be big contributors at their respective positions in 2018. 

Stoltenberg was the starting nose tackle for all 12 games in 2017. He finished his junior season with 33 tackles (12 solo). He also added four tackles for loss in 2017, as well as his first pass breakup of his career.

Morgan's junior season was a record-breaking one, leading to first-team All-Big Ten accolades from Phil Steele and second-team recognition from Big Ten coaches and media. He had a career-high 61 catches, 986 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns in 2017. While Morgan had hoped to eclipe 1,000 yards in 2017, he did set Nebraska’s season receiving-yards record. He surpassed Johnny Rodgers' 942 season receiving-yards from his Heisman-trophy winning 1972 season.

As for Foster, he was the starting left guard for all 12 games in 2017. He was also a team captain last season. He was a part of an offensive line that helped former Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee throw for 3,143 yards. Foster earned honorable-mention All-Big Ten accolades for his 2017 performance.

The three Nebraska seniors will also be joined by representatives from all 14 Big Ten programs. Here’s who will represent their teams at the 2018 Big Ten Media Days:
