The UCF Knights have had two players named to the 2014 Biletnikoff Award watch list.

Wide receivers Rannell Hall and Breshad Perriman have both been added, as has FSU Seminoles wideout Rashad Greene.

The award is given to the nation’s outstanding college receiver by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation.

Last season, Hall started all 13 games for the Knights and totalled 886 receiving yards on 57 catches. He also had five touchdown receptions. He also pilled up 689 yards on 29 kick returns and added a rushing touchdown.

Hall was named a member of the American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team and was selected as the team’s Outstanding Wide Receiver at the postseason awards banquet.

His teammate Perriman was also named a member of the American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team after posting 811 receiving yards on 39 catches while adding four touchdowns.

In UCF’s 52-42 Tostito Fiesta Bowl victory against the Baylor Bears, Hall had for catches four 113 yards and two scores. Perriman added 48 yards and a touchdown on three catches.

Greene was FSU’s leading receiever last season as he helped the Seminoles win the BCS National Title. He had 1,128 yards on 76 catches with nine touchdowns. His season didn’t go unnoticed though as he earned All-ACC First Team and Coaches All-ACC First Team honours.

He has also been named to the Maxwell Award watch list.

Neither USF or Florida had any players named to the Biletnikoff Award watch list.

Last year’s winner was Brandin Cooks of Oregon State.
