Ohio State Football: J.K. Dobbins On Doak Walker Preseason Watch List

J.K Dobbins has been named to the Doak-Walker Preseason Watch List for 2018. The award, first awarded in 1990 and presented by SMU, honors the top running back in the college football annually.

Dobbins is included among 61 other names on the watch list that was released today. Like many other award watch lists, it is important to note that running backs can — and will — be added to the list as the season goes on.

The Award will be trimmed to ten semifinalists on November 16, and quickly paired down to three finalists just a few days later on November 20. The winner will be announced during the Home Depot College Football Awards Show on ESPN December 6.

Dobbins burst onto the scene last year when he was called upon to replace returning starter Mike Weber because of a hamstring injury and never looked back. He broke the all-time single-season freshman rushing record at Ohio State with 1,403 yards and is entering his sophomore season with the anticipation of splitting carries with Weber.

How that all shakes out remains to be seen, but it’s clear that Dobbins is one of the best running backs in the country entering the 2018 season.
