Kansas University senior quarterback Todd Reesing is one of 33 college quarterbacks named to the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Watch List, the O'Brien selection committee announced Monday.
Reesing, who was a finalist for the award the past two seasons, is joined by Big 12 quarterbacks Sam Bradford (Oklahoma), Colt McCoy (Texas), Robert Griffin (Baylor), Zac Robinson (Oklahoma State) and Taylor Potts (Texas Tech) on the preseason watch list. The award is given annually to the nation's top quarterback.
Reesing enters his final season at KU as the career leader in nearly every significant passing category and finished his junior season in the top 20 nationally in passing yards per game (299.08), total offense (316.31), completions (25.31), points responsible for (16.62) and pass efficiency (148.52). He has thrown for 7,578 yards, 68 touchdowns and completed 64.2 percent of his passes for his career, meanwhile, while leading the Jayhawks to back-to-back bowl victories for the first time in school history.
