Three more University of Alabama football players were named to preseason award watch lists Monday morning, joining a bevy of Crimson Tide players named last week.

Minkah Fitzpatrick saw his list of preseason accolades grow when he was named to the Paul; Hornung watch list. Fitzpatrick is widely considered one of the best defensive backs in the nation. With Monday’s news, Fitzpatrick has been named to six preseason watch lists for the 2017 season. He was previously named to the Maxwell, Bednarik and Thorpe awards, and the Lott IMPACT and Nagurki trophies. In addition, he’s also a nominee for the American Football Coaches Associations’ Good Works Team.

Shaun Dion Hamilton and Rashaan Evans, both senior linebackers, were named to the Butkus Award watch lists. Former Alabama players Derrick Thomas, Rolando McClain, C.J. Mosley and Reuben Foster have previously won the award, given annually to college football’s top linebacker.
