Tunsil, Nkemdiche named to Outland Award watch list

By John Davis, Oxford Citizen

Sophomore offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil and sophomore defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche are the two latest Ole Miss players to be named to a preseason watch list.

Nkemdiche and Tunsil were both named to the Outland Trophy Award watch list by the Football Writers Association this morning. They are two of the 19 from the SEC to be on the list.

Senior safety Cody Prewitt was also named to the Bronko Nagurski watch list. The award is given to the nation’s top defensive player annually. Prewitt was a semifinalist for Thorpe last season, which is given to the top defensive back.

Tight end Evan Engram was named to Mackey Award watch list earlier this week, which goes to the top tight end in the country.
