Full Biletnikoff Award Watch List

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - After three outstanding performances on the field, Ole Miss sophomore wide receiver Donte Moncrief has been added to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List.

Moncrief leads the SEC and ranks 11th in the nation with 106.7 receiving yards per game. The Raleigh, Miss., native has 18 receptions for 320 yards and has caught a 50+ yard touchdown pass in each of the first three games. He is the first Rebel receiver to catch a touchdown in three straight games since Mike Wallace in 2008.

The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, the creator and sponsor of the Biletnikoff Award, presented annually to college football's outstanding receiver, announced the addition of eight players to watch list on Tuesday.

Foundation selection chairman Ritchie Pickron stated, "Eight players have distinguished themselves as receivers several games into the young college football season and merit inclusion on the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award."

Those players are:
Alex Amidon - Boston College
Anthony Amos - Middle Tennessee State University
Austin Franklin - New Mexico State University
Austin Hill - University of Arizona
Donte Moncrief - University of Mississippi
Allen Robinson - Penn State University
Marcus Sales - Syracuse University
Jaime Wilson - Western Michigan University

The Foundation expects to increase the number of players on the watch list during the course of the season.

"Given the significant number of excellent receivers this year, the Foundation will be active in the coming weeks in identifying additional receivers to be placed on the Biletnikoff Award watch list," noted Foundation Chairman Walter W. Manley, II."
