Isaiah Simmons was named to the preseason Butkus Award watch list on Monday morning. The award is given to the nation’s top linebacker at the end of each season.

Simmons is one of 51 finalists from 35 different universities to be named to the list. He joins Dylan Moses, the Alabama LB who won the high school version of the award back in 2016, and a semifinalist from last season, Markus Bailey from Purdue.
