Two Tigers named to top WR award watch list

by -

Clemson receivers Justyn Ross and Tee Higgins were named to the 2019 Biletnikoff Award watch list on Thursday.

The Biletnikoff Award annually recognizes the outstanding receiver in college football. Any player, regardless of position (wide receiver, tight end, split end, inside receiver, slot back or running back) who catches a pass is eligible for the award. As such, the Biletnikoff Award recognizes the outstanding receiver, not merely the outstanding wide receiver.

Higgins picked up first-team All-ACC honors last season with 59 catches for 936 yards and 12 scores.

Ross finished his rookie campaign strong with 12 receptions for 301 yards and three scores in blowout wins over Notre Dame and Alabama to capture the national title.

The award recipient is selected by the highly distinguished Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of prominent college football journalists, commentators, and former receivers. Foundation trustees do not vote and have never voted.

Receivers are periodically added to the watch list as their season performances dictate. Actual, not potential, performance is the basis for inclusion on the Biletnikoff Award Watch List. The transparently detailed and explicit criteria for candidate eligibility, watch list inclusion, and voting appear at:
