The Big Ten Conference on Wednesday recognized a total of 678 winter sports student-athletes who have been named to the Academic All-Conference team, which included 97 wrestlers. To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, student-athletes must be letterwinners who are in at least their second academic year at their institution and carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.

The list of grapplers included 48 repeat winners, including five-time honoree James English of Penn State. Not only did fellow Nittany Lion and Big Ten Wrestler of the Year David Taylor win his fourth individual conference title this season, he was also named an Academic All-Big Ten selection for the fourth time. Other four-time honorees include Indiana's Ryan LeBlanc, Iowa's Joe DuCharme, Michigan State's Nick Kaczanowski, Minnesota's Kevin Steinhaus and Purdue's Camden Eppert and Kyle Mosier.

Twelve of the 97 grapplers who earned Academic All-Conference distinction also collected All-America laurels at the NCAA Championships this season: Iowa's Nathan Burak, Michigan's Steve Dutton, Michigan State's Michael McClure, Minnesota's Scott Schiller, Steinhaus and Danny Zilverberg, Nebraska's Robert Kokesh, Northwestern's Pierce Harger, Penn State's Matt Brown, English, Nico Megaludis and Taylor.
