Rutgers Football: Mohamed Sanu Added To Biletnikoff Award Watch List

Rutgers University junior wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was placed on the Biletnikoff Award watch list Thursday. The award, which is annual given to the nation's best wide receiver, has been won by well-known names such as Calvin Johnson (Detroit Lions), Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals) and Michael Crabtree (San Fransisco 49ers).

Currently, Sanu (6-foot-2, 215-pounds) leads the Big East Conference in receptions per game (9.23), is second in receiving yards per game (97.57) and is on pace to break some prolific Big East receiver records. This year, Sanu is on pace to catch 111 passes which would break the school record, held by Scarlet Knight Kenny Britt, who caught 87 passes in a single season, and the league record, which is held by an All-Pro NFL and former Pittsburgh Panther wide receiver, Fitzgerald, who caught 92 passes.

On Sept. 24, against Ohio University, Sanu caught a Big East and school record 16 passes. Sanu finished the game with a collegiate-best 176-receiving yards and two touchdowns.
