While the season is still a long way out, it is not too early to begin compiling list of players to keep an eye on. For the 2014 season, junior center Ty Darlington has been named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List. Darlington is expected to take over at center with the departure of Gabe Ikard.

The Rimington Trophy, named after Nebraska's Dave Rimington, is awarded to the nation's top center. In the Big XII Conference, no player has won the award since 2000. However, TCU and West Virginia have had players win the award before conference realignment. Can Darlington be the next in line?
