FSU places four players on Outland Trophy watch list

Florida State has placed four players on the Outland Trophy watch list, the most of any college football program.

Center Bryan Stork, offensive tackle Cameron Erving, offensive guard Tre Jackson and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan are vying for the award, which is presented to the top interior lineman in college football.

Stork, a senior, has played in 35 games at Florida State, starting 27. He is considered the Seminoles’ most consistent and versatile lineman. Stork graded out at 85 percent last season, which led the team.

Erving, a junior, started 14 games at left tackle in 2012 after moving over from defensive tackle. He graded at 73 percent over his final six games of the year.

Jackson, a junior, started 14 games and had 22 knockdown blocks with an 84 percent grade.

Jernigan, a junior, started two games last season but saw significant playing time as a reserve. He had 46 tackles in 2012.
