Grant named to Biletnikoff Award Watch List
Texas Tech junior Jakeem Grant became the latest in a long history of Red Raider wide receivers to be named to the Biletnikoff Award watch list Tuesday.
His selection marks the seventh-straight season where a Red Raider has been a preseason nominee for the Biletnikoff Award, which is presented annually to the nation’s top receiver.
Grant was Tech’s third-leading receiver in 2013, catching 65 passes for 796 yards, while finding the end zone seven times through the air. The speedy slot receiver was also lethal in the return game as well, averaging just over 21 yards per return on kickoffs.
The 2014 Biletnikoff Award will be presented on Dec. 11 at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show that will air live on ESPN.
