Rutgers DB Logan Ryan On 2012 Thorpe Award Watch List

Rutgers Scarlet Knights junior defensive back Logan Ryan has been named to the 2012 Thorpe Award Watch List.

Logan was one of 35 defensive backs across the country to be placed on the list released by the Jim Thorpe Association on Friday. Logan is joined by two other Big East foes on the list, safety Jarred Holley (Pittsburgh) and safety Hakeem Smith (Louisville). The Thorpe Award is handed out annually to the top defensive back in college football. The winner will be named on Dec. 6. Ryan also was named to the watch list for the Bednarik Award which goes to the country's top defensive player.

Last season, Ryan was third on the team in tackles with 67 (5.5 for loss) and led the team with 14 pass breakups. He also had two forced fumbles and three interceptions, one of which was a pick six. Logan was named to the second-team All-Big East team in 2011.
