Late last week, I asked seven Big Ten players to give me a true freshman who has stood out to them thus far, and who could potentially make an impact in the upcoming 2015 season. Here is part two of the piece, featuring the picks for Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Penn State, Purdue and Rutgers. Jehu Chesson, Michigan: Alex Malzone, QB. He’s a cool kid.
