USC quarterback Matt Barkley, receiver Robert Woods and safety T.J. McDonald were named to the Walter Camp Player of the Year watch list on Friday, capping off a two-week stretch of announcements that saw several Trojans got nominated.
Three schools had three players on the list -- USC, Kansas State and Oklahoma. The watch list will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists in mid-November. The eventual award is voted on by NCAA head coaches and sports information directors and announced on SportsCenter on December 6.
Barkley, Woods and McDonald have all earned other watch-list honors this preseason. USC has had a player win the award six times, with Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush last taking it home in back-to-back years in 2004 and 2005.
Stanford's Andrew Luck won the award in 2011.
