1 - First Team selection in 2019.

2 - Second Team selection in 2019.

3 - Honorable Mention in 2019

^ - Unanimous Preseason Team selection

None of those selections should come as a surprise to Iowa State fans. RS Junior Charlie Kolar is widely recognized as one of the best tight ends in college football, and has a good chance to be a Mackey Award finalist in 2020. Kolar was also named to the Biletnikoff Award List earlier today.

RS Senior JaQuan Bailey was the 2019 Big 12 Preseason Defensive Player of the Year before eventually shutting down his season early due to injury, so it’s not a huge shock that he retains his place among the Big 12 elite.

RS Senior Greg Eisworth is the final pick for the Cyclones. Since transferring to Iowa State from JUCO, Eisworth has been one of the most consistent performers in the secondary in the conference, and has been the linchpin around which the Cyclone defensive renaissance has revolved around.

Oklahoma State’s Heisman-contending running back Chuba Hubbard picked up Preseason Offensive Player of the Year honors, while West Virginia’s Darius Stills picked up the honor on Defense. Spencer Rattler picked up Preseason Newcomer of the Year honors ahead of his highly anticipated season as the quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners.
