Chuckie Keeton first found himself on the national radar following a breakout performance against Auburn in his first career game.
Now, big things are expected from the sophomore quarterback out of Houston.
Keeton has been placed on the College Football Performance Offensive Awards Watch List. He is one of 33 quarterbacks around the country to be recognized, and he's the only player from Utah and the Western Athletic Conference to be on the list.
Keeton will battle senior Adam Kennedy for the starting job in fall camp. Keeton threw just two interceptions in his first season under center. He tied a school record with five touchdown passes in a 63-19 win over Wyoming.
