University of SC senior Skai Moore was named Monday to the Butkus Award Watch List, which honors the nation's best linebacker.

Moore, a 6-foot-2, 218-pounder from Cooper City, Fla., returned to the field in the spring after taking a redshirt year in 2016 because of a neck injury. He finished the year as an All-Big 12 second-team selection by the league and Associated Press.

Moore has tallied 260 career tackles, needing 47 to move into the school's all-time top-10.
