Phil Steele, one of the most respected names in the business when it comes to college football prognosticating, has issued his 2010 Preseason All-Big Ten team, as it appears in his annual College Football Preview magazine, which is out on newsstands now.

Steele named nine Ohio State players to his first team: Terrelle Pryor (QB), DeVier Posey (WR), Michael Brewster (C), Justin Boren (OG), Cameron Heyward (DL), Ross Homan (LB), Brian Rolle (LB), Chimdi Chekwa (CB) and Jermale Hines (FS).

Steele also listed Pryor in his publication as the Heisman Trophy front runner, ahead of defending winner Mark Ingram (RB) of Alabama.

He also predicted that Ohio State would begin the 2010 season as the No. 2 rated team in the country, just behind national champion Alabama.
