Oklahoma State tight end Jelani Woods has been named to the John Mackey Award preseason watch list. The award is given to the best tight end in college football.

Tight ends up for the award exemplify the play, sportsmanship, academics and community values of NFL Hall of Famer John Mackey.

Woods joins four other Big 12 players on the list of 36 tight ends. He started in 12 of the 13 games he played in last year and caught 16 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. His five catches in the 45-27 loss to Baylor on Oct. 29 was a career high.

The winner will be announced in December.
