Northwestern fifth year Seniors, Defensive Back Ibraheim Campbell, Quarterback Trevor Simian and Linebacker Collin Ellis will appear for Northwestern at the Big Ten Media Luncheon with Coach Pat Fitzgerald July 28-29 at the Hilton Chicago.

Simian finished last season with 2,149 yards, 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Northwestern's offense slumped last season and Simian finished just eighth in the conference in passing. He did have to split time with the graduated Kain Colter.

Simian has 3,711 yards, 20 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in his career.

Campbell is one among the Big Ten's active leaders in career interceptions with eight. His four interceptions tied him for fourth in the B1G last season. He also ranked among the league leaders tackles and passes defensed. Phil Steele of the Big Ten Network named Campbell to his second team all defense in his pre-season rankings.

Ellis will also be a key part of a Northwestern defense hoping to improve on last season. Like Campbell, Ellis ranked among the league leaders in multiple categories in 2013. Steele named him to the Big Ten's fourth team all defense in his rankings.

Ellis' 78 tackles and three interceptions placed him third on NU last season.
