Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert has added the Davey O'Brien Award watch list to his growing pile of preseason honors, the school announced Tuesday.

The junior joins 25 others in contention for the award, which is given to the top college quarterback in the country.

Herbert was named to the Maxwell Award watch list on Monday, honoring the nation's college player of the year, and is mentioned among the top quarterbacks in at least eight national publications.

The Eugene native has thrown for 3,919 yards, 34 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 17 games during his first two seasons with the Ducks.
