On Wednesday, Notre Dame junior wide receiver Will Fuller was named to the Biletnikoff Award preseason watch list.

Finally.

Fuller — a 6-foot, 180-pound wide receiver from Philadelphia — was left off the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award, which honors college football's top receiver, throughout his breakout sophomore campaign, in which he caught 76 passes for 1,094 yards and 15 touchdowns, averaging 14.4 yards per reception.

Fuller was one of 48 wide receivers to make the preseason watch list, and the only pass-catcher representing Notre Dame.
