Utah WR Dres Anderson named to Biletnikoff watch list

Already one of 76 players thought by Maxwell Award organizers to potentially be college football’s best, Utah senior Dres Anderson became one of 55 on the watch list for the receiver-specific Biletnikoff Award on Tuesday.

Anderson caught 53 passes for 1,002 yards and seven touchdowns last season despite often being double-covered after an injury to fellow deep threat Kenneth Scott in the opener against Utah State.

Anderson is the only player from a Utah school on the Biletnikoff watch list, and one of just seven in the Pac-12.

Other Utes deemed watch-worthy are kicker Andy Phillips and punter Tom Hackett.
