Big Ten Media Days are set to get underway this Thursday and a trio of Penn State seniors will join James Franklin for the event in Indianapolis.

James Franklin has only brought seniors with him to Media Day throughout his tenure. Cam Brown, John Reid, and Blake Gillikin represented Penn State the last time the event was held in person prior to the 2019 season. The 2020 edition was held virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dotson, Mustipher, and Castro-Fields will all be multi-year starters this fall, and good seasons will put them on the NFL's radar. This will be the first time they speak to media outlets in person since the 2019 Cotton Bowl.

Franklin is scheduled to meet with the media for his kickoff press conference at noon on Thursday afternoon.
