Kentucky Wildcats wideout Wan’Dale Robinson has been added to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List, it was announced Wednesday.

This award is annually presented to college football’s best FBS receiver, regardless of position (wide receiver, tight end, slot back, and running back). He’s one of eight players being added to the list based on performance during the 2021 season thus far.

The 5-foot-10, 183-pound Robinson has caught a team-high 25 balls for 402 yards and two touchdowns. He ranks 14th nationally and second in the SEC in receiving yards per game (100.5), third in the league in all-purpose yards per game (123.3), fifth in catches per game (6.25), and has six plays of 30+ yards through four games.

The Frankfort (KY) native became the first Wildcat since Derek Abney in 2001 to have three-straight 100-yard receiving games and the first in school history to open a season with three straight after doing so in wins over Louisiana Monroe, Missouri and Chattanooga.

Like many awards, there will be a fan vote, which you can use here. The aggregate fan tally will be counted as one official vote to determine semi-finalists (10 receivers), finalists (three receivers), and the winner.

The 2021 Biletnikoff Award winner will be presented the Biletnikoff Award trophy by TQC Foundation Chairman Roger Champion, keynoter and college hall of famer and two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin, and college and pro football hall of famer Fred Biletnikoff at the Biletnikoff Award Banquet & Celebration at the University Center Club at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Saturday, March 5, 2022.
