Jaxon Smith-Njigba

Ohio State wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba leads the Fred Biletnikoff Award Watch List released on July 20.

The Biletnikoff Award is presented annually to the nation’s best pass catcher and is named for the former NFL wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Famer.

Smith-Njigba enters 2022 coming off a season in which he caught 95 passes for 1,606 yards and nine touchdowns, as the Buckeyes went 11-2.

Smith-Njigba is featured in the 2022 College Football America Yearbook.

Among the members of the watch list is defending Biletnikoff winner, Jordan Addison, who won the award at Pitt last season and is now at USC.

The College Football America 2022 Yearbook features more than 900 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada). It also includes dozens of action shots and stadium photos taken by the CFA staff.
