Latimer named to Biletnikoff Watch List


Totally missed this yesterday. From IU sports info:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana junior wide receiver Cody Latimer has been selected to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List, the Tallahassee Quarterback Club (TQC) Foundation, Inc., released Tuesday morning. The Biletnikoff Award recognizes the outstanding receiver in college football.

A 2012 All-Big Ten honoree, Latimer owned a team-best 805 yards, 67.1 per game, six touchdowns and 15.8 yards per reception to go along with 51 catches. The Dayton, Ohio, native ended the season second in the Big Ten in yards per game, tied for fourth in TDs and seventh in receptions per game (4.2).

He recorded a pair of 100-yard games last year against Ball State (115) and Iowa (113). He pulled in a career-high-tying seven receptions and a career-high three touchdowns en route to his first co-Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor against the Hawkeyes.

Latimer enters 2013 with 946 career yards, 54 shy of becoming the 37th Hoosier to reach the 1,000-yard mark.

The award recipient is selected by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of over 200 prominent college football journalists, commentators, and former receivers. Receivers may be added to the watch list as their season performances dictate. The 2013 Biletnikoff Award will be presented live on December 12, 2013, on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show to be broadcast from 7-9 p.m. on ESPN.

The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc., will announce the 10 Biletnikoff Award semifinalists on November 18, 2013, following the vote by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee. Likewise, the three finalists will be declared, following another vote, on November 25, 2013.
