LSU senior Tre'Davious White and junior safety Jamal Adams were both named to the 2016 JIm Thorpe Award watch list on Monday. The Award is presented to the best defensive back in College Football each season.

White and Adams were two of 39 players named to the watch list. Per

Adams earned Second-Team All-SEC recognition in 2015 after he led the team with four interceptions, finished third on the squad with 67 tackles and added 5.0 tackles for a loss and six pass breakups.

White is back for his fourth year as a starting cornerback for the Tigers and his third as the punt returner. A Second-Team All-SEC selection in 2015, White led LSU with seven pass breakups a year ago and finished with 44 tackles, including 30 solo, and he returned 20 punts for 229 yards with a 69-yard touchdown return at Syracuse.
The award recipient will be announced on Dec. 8. Former LSU cornerbacks Patrick Peterson and Morris Claiborne both won the award.
