  • 2017 Paul Hornung Award Watch List

    BOISE, Idaho - Boise State senior wide receiver Cedrick Wilson was named to his first postseason-award watch list Monday, as the Louisville Sports Commission tabbed him as a candidate for the Paul Hornung Award.

    The Paul Hornung Award presented by Texas Roadhouse is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football. The 2017 recipient will be announced Dec. 6.

    Last year, in his debut season at Boise State, Wilson caught 56 passes for 1,129 yards and a team-leading 11 touchdowns en route to being named All-Mountain West Honorable Mention. During the second half of the season, Wilson flashed his play-making abilities as part of the Bronco return game, averaging 21.3 yards per kick return and 13.2 yards over 10 punt returns, including a 73-yard return Nov. 18 against UNLV.

    He posted five 100-yard receiving games, including performances of nine catches for 167 yards and three touchdowns at New Mexico (Oct. 7) and four receptions for a season-high 193 yards and a score at Air Force (Nov. 25).

    Wilson finished the season ranked in the Mountain West top 10 in touchdown catches (third), receiving yards (fourth), receiving yards per game (86.8, fourth), receptions (sixth) and receptions per game (4.3, ninth).

    A former prep quarterback, Wilson also proved himself a threat slinging the ball, going 2-for-2 last year for 84 yards and a touchdown.

    Boise State opens its 2017 campaign Sept. 2 at Albertsons Stadium, hosting Troy at 1:45 p.m.
