Chris Olave Named To Biletnikoff Award Watch List

Chris Olave

Ohio State junior wide receiver Chris Olave was named to the 2020 Biletnikoff Award Watch List.

Olave caught 48 passes for 840 yards and 12 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2019. With Justin Fields back at quarterback, and the Buckeyes now replacing Binjimen Victor, Austin Mack, and KJ Hill at wide receiver, he could be in line for an even bigger year as a junior.

The Biletnikoff Award recognizes the college football season’s outstanding FBS receiver, regardless of position. Any player, regardless of position (wide receiver, tight end, split end, inside receiver, slot back or running back) who catches a pass is eligible for the award. As such, the Biletnikoff Award recognizes the outstanding receiver, not merely the outstanding wide receiver. The award recipient is selected by the highly distinguished Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of prominent college football journalists, commentators, and former receivers. Foundation trustees do not vote and have never voted. BiletnikoffAward.com/voters

Receivers are periodically added to the watch list as their season performances dictate. Actual, not potential, performance is the basis for inclusion on the Biletnikoff Award Watch List.
