TALLAHASSEE — Explosive sophomore Tar Heel receiver Quinshad Davis was named to the 2013 Biletnikoff Award Watch List on Tuesday.

It is certainly a positive sign that Davis has been tabbed for such a prestigious award on the offensive side of the ball as so much of the up-tempo offensive success for the Tar Heels will hinge on the sure hands of wide receivers like Davis.

The Biletnikoff Award recognizes the most outstanding receiver in college football. The award recipient is selected by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of more than 200 prominent college football journalists, commentators, and former receivers.

Davis had an electrifying freshman season in Chapel Hill, racking up 776 receiving yards on 61 catches. Both tallies set freshman records for UNC. In fact, his 61 reception total was good for second all-time for freshmen in ACC history.
