Texas Tech junior Le’Raven Clark was one of 64 offensive and defensive linemen named to the Outland Trophy Watch List on Thursday, the Football Writers Association of America announced.
The FWAA will trim its watch list to six or seven semifinalists on Nov. 20 before naming three finalists on Nov. 24. This is the second-straight season where Clark has been named to the watch list, according to a Texas Tech news release.
The Rockdale native bolstered the Red Raider offensive line a year ago, starting in all 13 games en route to earning All-Big 12 first team honors by the Associated Press and Athlon Sports.
Clark is the fourth Red Raiders to be named to a preseason watch list this week, joining Kenny Williams (Paul Hornung Award), Davis Webb (Mawell Award) and Ryan Bustin (Lou Groza Award).
The 69th Outland Trophy, which is named after former Penn All-American lineman John Outland, will be presented on Dec. 11 at the Home Depot College Football Awards in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
