Josh Doctson was named a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, presented to the nation’s top receiver.

The senior from Mansfield Legacy leads the country in receiving yards despite having only one catch in the past two weeks. He missed last week’s game against Oklahoma because of an ankle injury that limited him the week before against Kansas. He was hurt in the second quarter the week before at Oklahoma State.

Joining him as the finalists are Baylor’s Corey Coleman and Ole Miss’ Laquon Treadwell.

Doctson has 79 catches for 1,327 yards and 14 touchdowns, all single-season school records. He also owns the school career records for yards and touchdown catches and needs two catches to set the receptions record. He has been ruled out of Friday’s game against Baylor, but might play in TCU’s bowl game.

The award is presented in a ceremony Dec. 10 in Atlanta during the Home Depot College Football Awards Show on ESPN.
