Auburn juniors C.J. Uzomah and Reese Dismukes were added to the watch lists for the Mackey Award and Rimington Award respectively on Tuesday.

Auburn, Ala.—The Watch List numbers continue to grow for the Auburn Tigers as juniors Reese Dismukes and C.J. Uzomah were named to lists on Tuesday, joining senior defensive end Dee Ford from Monday.

One of 37 tight ends named to the 2013 preseason watch list for the John Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end, Uzomah caught seven passes for 136 yards last season in a limited role for the Tigers. At 6-4, 253 and very athletic, the former high school quarterback has a chance to blow those numbers away this season in Gus Malzahn’s offense.

“It’s an honor to be mentioned among the top tight ends this preseason, but I realize there is still a lot of work to be done,” Uzomah said. “Individual achievements are a blessing and I give the glory to God, but more important is what our team can achieve in the season ahead.”

One of nine SEC players named to the Rimington Award Watch List, Dismukes is one of Auburn’s most experienced returning players for the 2013 season and is expected to be a leader on offense for coordinator Rhett Lashlee and offensive line coach J.B. Grimes.

At 6-3, 290, Dismukes enters the new season in the best shape of his Auburn career. A former All-SEC Freshman team member and a Freshman All-American, Dismukes started all 13 games as a freshman and made 10 starts last season after missing two games because of suspension and injury.

Auburn will open practice on Aug. 1 and kick off the 2013 season against Washington State on Aug. 31 at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
