Uzomah was one of 37 players named to the preseason list, placing him in pretty elite company. The preseason honor shows high expectations for the junior, who will try to fill the shoes of Philip Lutzenkirchen along with fellow tight end Brandon Fulse. Last season, Uzomah caught seven passes for 136 yards and one touchdown. Those numbers represent his two-year career totals at Auburn.
Last season, Notre Dame's Tyler Eifert took home the award after compiling 50 receptions for 685 yards and four scores. Eifert parlayed that performance into a first-round selection at April's NFL Draft, going to the Cincinnati Bengals with the 21st-overall pick.
