LSU sophomore corner Derek Stingley Jr. and senior safety JaCoby Stevens were named to the Jim Thorpe Award watch list on Monday to little surprise.

If either of the two were to take home the award — given annually to the nation’s top defensive back — they would join Patrick Peterson, Morris Claiborne and Grant Delpit as the fourth player in program history to earn the prestigious honor.

2019 stats:

D. Stingley: 38 tackles, 6 INT, 1 FR

J. Stevens: 92 tackles, 5 sacks, 3 INT
