Four Hogs' receivers on Biletnikoff list

7/7/2011

The 2011 watch list for the Biletnikoff Award has a definite Arkansas feel to it.

The Hogs placed four receivers on the preseason list, which lists 75 players as candidates for college football's top award for a wide receiver. Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon won the 2010 award and is once again on the 2011 watch list.

Arkansas seniors Joe Adams, Greg Childs and Jarius Wright were joined on the watch list by junior Cobi Hamilton.

The Hogs led the way nationally with four receivers on the list, but Alabama had three, including junior college transfer Duron Carter, who's hopeful of enrolling this week in the second session of summer school. Seniors Marquis Maze and Darius Hanks also made the list from Alabama.

The SEC had 12 players to make the cut, which was more than any other conference in the country.

Here's a complete list of the SEC players:

The five SEC guys not on the list that I think have a good chance to play their way onto it this season are Auburn's Trovon Reed, LSU's Russell Shepard, Florida's Deonte Thompson and the Tennessee duo of Justin Hunter and Da'Rick Rogers.
