The Washington State receiver becomes the third member of WSU's receiving corps on the watch list for the award honoring the nation's top receiver.
No other Pac-12 team has even two players on the list and Washington State is the only team in the country with three.
Williams is currently tied for No. 4 in the Pac-12 with 41 receptions for 562 yards and six touchdowns. He is No. 2 in school history with 25 receiving touchdowns over the course of his career. He also holds the WSU record for multi-touchdown games with eight.
The Cougars ended last season with three players on the watch list: Vince Mayle, River Cracraft and Isiah Myers, and Mayle was named one of 10 semifinalists. This year Williams joins Cracraft and Gabe Marks on the watch list.
