As fans await to learn the status of several highly-sought NFL prospects who previously opted out of the season prior to the Big Ten’s initial cancelation, like Micah Parsons, some players learned Wednesday that they will get their first opportunity to play football this fall in the Power 5 conference — four of whom are 2020 Southern Columbia graduates.

There will be a total of six area players playing football this year in the Big Ten: four true freshman from SCA in Preston Zachman (Wisconsin), Gaige Garcia (Michigan), Cal Haladay (Michigan State) and Julian Fleming (Ohio State).
