USC players continue to garner attention ahead of the 2017 season making their way onto preseason award watch lists.  

This time, it's redshirt junior wide receiver Deebo Samuel who finds himself on the Paul Hornung Award preseason watch list. 

The award is presented to the most versatile player in college football by the Louisville Sports Commission.  

Last season, Samuel led all USC receivers with  receptions and 783 yards in 10 games to bounce back from an injury-plagued as a redshirt freshman. In 2015, Samuel caught 12 passes for 161 yards in just five games.   

Samuel is among 46 players named to the preseason watch list. He is among eight SEC players to make the list.
