Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert was named Saturday morning to the watch list for the Paul Hornung Award presented by the Louisville Sports Commission and sponsored by Texas Roadhouse. Gilbert showed his versatility, which is the criteria for the award, by averaging 26.5 yards per kickoff return including a nation's active collegiate player best five kickoffs returned for touchdowns.

Gilbert also has 140 career tackles and five interceptions.

The Huntsville, Texas native had a strong spring and said he is determined to play better coming off a junior season that was difficult on Gilbert and the OSU defense as a whole.

Other Big 12 players on the Paul Hornung Watch List are Brandon Carter of TCU, cornerback Quandre Diggs of Texas, Tyler Lockett of Kansas State, and Tremaine Thompson also of K-State.
