DALLAS, Texas — Washington State sophomore offensive lineman Abraham Lucas has been named to the 2019 Outland Trophy Watch List, the Football Writers Association of America announced Tuesday.
The award is given annually to the top interior lineman in college football.
Lucas, a graduate of Archbishop Murphy High School, started all 13 games at right tackle for the Cougars last season. He was named to the Freshman All-America Team by USA TODAY and earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors. He was rated the No. 14 offensive tackle in the country and second-best pass-blocking tackle in 2018 by ProFootballFocus.com.
Lucas is one of 12 players from the Pac-12 Conference named to the watch list. The group also includes two Washington Huskies: tackle Trey Adams and center Nick Harris.
