Three Big Ten centers on Rimington list

Michigan's David Molk, Ohio State's Mike Brewster and Northwestern's Ben Burkett have been named to the spring watch list for the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the nation's top center.

The Big Ten likely would have had a fourth selection, Penn State's Stefen Wisniewski, but he moved back to guard this spring after earning consensus first-team all-conference honors at center in 2009.

Brewster and Burkett enter their third seasons in starting roles, while Molk started in 2008 and played in four games last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury against Penn State.
