Carr isn’t a surprise. The Northwestern junior leads the Big Ten in both receiving yards (465), receiving touchdowns (six) and receptions (32).
Wolitarsky has 321 receiving yards (80.3 per game) and has found the end zone three times. Jones is third in the conference with 87.5 yards per game, though he has only scored once. Jones edged out teammate Nick Westbrook, who leads the Hoosiers in both yards (370) and touchdowns (four).
Also absent from the top three was Ohio State standout Curtis Samuel, who is fourth in the conference in yards per game (86.3) and has scored three touchdowns.
