Royster officially nominated for Doak Walker


Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Got word from Penn State last night that the school has nominated junior Evan Royster for the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top running back. Penn State missed the previous deadline for nominations, and Royster was not included on the preseason watch list.

A semifinalist for the award last year, Royster will be on any lists from here on out. The award will be presented in December at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show.
