LSU junior cornerback Donte Jackson was one of 45 players named to the Jim Thorpe watch list on Friday.

The award is presented each season to the best defensive back in college football. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

Jackson played in all 12 games and started in 11 of those at cornerback. Arguably the fastest player in all of college football, Jackson totaled 39 tackles for the Tigers, including a career-high seven against Alabama.

Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu won the Jim Thorpe Award in 2010 and 2011. The duo made LSU one of two schools in the history of the award to win in consecutive seasons.
