LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas junior wide receiver Lawrence Arnold has been named to the watch list for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, which recognizes the nation’s outstanding Division I college offensive player who was either born in Texas, graduated from a Texas high school or played at a Texas-based junior college or four-year college.

From DeSoto, Texas, Arnold enters his junior season at Kansas after graduating from DeSoto High School in the class of 2020. He has amassed 69 receptions for 958 yards and seven touchdowns during his time at Kansas, including a career-best 44 receptions last season. Arnold led the Jayhawks with 716 receiving yards, including three 100-yard receiving games, and he capped off the season with career-highs of eight receptions and 119 receiving yards in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl against Arkansas. Arnold has previously earned Preseason All-Big 12 recognition from Athlon and Phil Steele, who both selected him as a fourth team selection.

Arnold joins a growing list of Kansas football players to be named to preseason watch lists, becoming the ninth player to earn such recognition.
