It’s never a bad thing to make a watch list.
Nebraska’s Trey Palmer, who transferred from LSU after Mickey Joseph was hired at Nebraska, is now the third Husker player to make a pre-season watch list.
Here’s the statement from the Athletic Department:
Nebraska wide receiver Trey Palmer has been named to the 2022 Paul Hornung Award presented by Texas Roadhouse watch list, which was announced Thursday afternoon. The award is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football.
Palmer is in his first season at Nebraska after spending the last three years at LSU. He totaled 41 receptions in his career while also returning kicks for the Tigers.
Last season, he hauled in 30 passes for 344 yards and three touchdowns, ranking third on the team in touchdown receptions and fourth in catches. He also returned 18 punts for 115 yards and seven kickoffs for 142 yards. In 2020, he averaged 34.4 yards per kickoff return, highlighted by a 93-yard touchdown against South Carolina, while catching 10 passes for 108 yards. He was also a member of LSU’s 2019 National Championship team, playing as a true freshman.
