Watch list season continues to roll along.

Returning starters Malik Harrison and Tuf Borland were named to the preseason watch list of the Butkus Award, which is given annually to the best linebacker in the country.

Harrison tied for the team lead with 81 tackles last season. He had 8.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and an interception. Borland had 67 tackles with nine tackles for loss, three sacks and two forced fumbles.

The Butkus Award, which has existed since 1985, has twice been given to Buckeyes. Andy Katzenmoyer won the award in 1997, and James Laurinaitis is the most recent honoree, having won it in 2007.
