PHILADELPHIA - Utah wide receiver Dres Anderson has been named to the watch list for the Maxwell Award, given to America's College Player of the Year since 1937.

Anderson, who was an honorable mention All-Pac-12 selection last season, is preparing to start for his third season. Last year he became the seventh receiver in school history to reach 1,000 yards in a season, gaining 1,002 yards on 53 catches. Anderson led the Pac-12 and was 12th in the country in yards per catch (18.91) in 2013, while finishing fourth in the Pac-12 in receiving yards per game (83.5). He was tied for first in the nation in receptions of 50 yards or longer (7). Anderson has six career 100-yard receiving games, which is tied for fifth in school history.

The watch list candidates were chosen by the Maxwell Football Club's selection committee, which analyzes both past performance and future potential. Semifinalists will be announced Nov. 3, while three finalists will be unveiled Nov. 24. The winner will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show, held on Dec. 11.
