Texas Tech Lineman Lonnie Edwards One of 7 Big 12 Players Named to Outland Trophy Preseason Watch List

Texas Tech’s left guard, Lonnie Edwards, has been named to the Outland preseason watch list. The Outland is awarded to the best lineman in the country.

Edwards, a senior from Brownboro, Texas, is 6-foot-4 and weighs 322 pounds. Edwards was a second-team all-Big 12 honoree last year. Edwards has started in 32 games for the Red Raiders and will be the starting left guard.

The Outland Award is named after the late John Outland, an All-America lineman at Penn and Kansas at the turn of the century. This will be the 66th Outland Awards making it the 3rd oldest award in college football, behind the Heisman (1935) and the Maxwell (1937). The Outland award has been given out annually since 1946.

Edwards is one of 7 Big 12 lineman named to the list.

The other Big 12 members include:

Levy Adcock, OT, Oklahoma State

Ban Habern, C, Oklahoma

Dan Hoch, OT, Missouri

Kelechi Osemele, OT, Iowa State

Kheeston Randall, DT, Texas

Lane Talyor, G, Oklahoma State

The winner of the award will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards on Dec. 8 on ESPN.
