PHILADELPHIA -- TCU wide receivers Deanté Gray and KaVontae Turpin appear on the watch list for the 2016 Maxwell Award, presented to America's College Player of the Year.

Gray was sidelined by injury for the entire 2015 season. The Houston native was one of TCU's big-play weapons in 2014 with 36 receptions for 582 yards and eight touchdowns. He is the fastest player on the Horned Frogs with a 4.36 time in the 40.

Gray earned his TCU degree in May 2016 and will play this fall as a graduate student.

Turpin was a Freshman All-American and All-Big 12 recipient last year. He set TCU freshman records with his 45 receptions for 649 yards and eight touchdowns, which tied for second nationally among freshmen.

The Monroe, La., native set a Big 12 freshman record with four touchdown catches against Texas, a mark that tied for the top spot in the nation by an FBS player last season. He was the only player in the country in 2015 to rank in the top 25 in kickoff returns (27.0 average) and punt returns (10.6 average). He averaged 15.3 yards each time he touched the ball.
