Rutgers wide receiver Bo Melton catches a pass while Nebraska's JoJo Domann defends Dec. 18, 2020, at SHI Stadium in Piscataway, N.J.

Watchlist season rolls on, and JoJo Domann is being recognized again. 

The Nebraska senior outside linebacker was named to the preseason Bronko Nagurski Trophy watchlist Tuesday morning. 

Domann, the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder, played every snap over eight games for the Huskers in 2020 and finished with a career-best 58 tackles (6½ for loss). He also broke up five passes, forced to fumbles and recovered one. 

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy is given by the Football Writers of America annually to the nation's top defensive player. The preseason watchlist includes 90 players, including 13 from the Big Ten.
