Big 12 has six on Hornung watch list
Six from the Big 12 made the cut.
- Tavon Austin, West Virginia
- D.J. Beshears, Kansas
- Brandon Carter, TCU
- Quandre Diggs, Texas
- Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State
- Josh Lenz, Iowa State
The Hornung Award is only 3 years old, but it's a pretty cool designation. Gotta love Austin's chances here. He personifies versatile. He's a great receiver, but they love to give him the ball on jet sweeps, too. He's also great in the return game.
Look out for Gilbert, a cornerback/kick returner, to make some noise in the award race, too.
Georgia's Brandon Boykin, a CB/KR, won the award last year. Stanford's Owen Marecic won the inaugural award in 2010 for his work at linebacker and fullback.
