Maryland receiver DJ Moore is finally getting some national recognition for the outstanding numbers he’s posted this season.
Moore, who leads the B1G in receptions (44), yards (624) and touchdowns (7) was added to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List this week, an honor awarded to college football’s most outstanding receiver.

This was a list Moore should’ve been named to several weeks ago, but his inclusion finally came after catching 12 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday’s game against Northwestern. It was the second time this season the receiver has eclipsed the 100-yard mark.
Last year, Moore caught 41 passes for 637 yards and six touchdowns. In just six games this year, he’s surpassed his reception and touchdown totals from 2016 and needs just 14 yards to eclipse last season’s total.
For his career, Moore has 1,618 yards and 16 touchdowns in 31 career games for the Terrapins.
