On Friday, the Walter Camp Foundation announced the "50 players to watch" as potential winners of the 2012 version of the Player of the Year award, the fourth oldest individual award in college football.
Among those names are products from Michigan, including Wolverines senior quarterback Denard Robinson, Michigan State defensive end William Gholston and Western Michigan quarterback Alex Carder.
In November, the list of 50 will be cut down to 10 semifinalists prior to the winner of the award being announced Thursday, Dec. 6 on ESPN.
Stanford quarterback and first-overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, Andrew Luck, won the award in 2011.
