Can UCLA pull off a repeat?
Linebackers Myles Jack and Eric Kendricks were both named to the 42-man watch list for the Lott IMPACT Trophy — which Anthony Barr won last year. Kendricks, a senior, also made last year’s preseason list.
One of the sport’s major national awards, its stated criteria is “to give equal weight to personal character as well as athletic performance from a defensive college player.”
Jack and Kendricks were two of the Pac-12’s 11 nominees. USC, Stanford and Washington each also placed two names on the list.
