Oklahoma State SF Jeffrey Carroll was added to the Julius Erving Award watch list on Wednesday. The award is given to best small forward in the nation.

Coming off of a breakout junior season, Carroll will look to build off of a season in which he poured in 576 points, shot over 50 percent from the field, and 44 percent from beyond the ark. An improvement on those numbers would put him among the nation’s best collegiate basketball players.

The recognition is Carroll’s second of the offseason, as he was named a preseason Big 12 first-teamer last week.

Others on the list include Texas A&M’s DJ Hogg, Duke’s Gary Trent Jr. and Kentucky’s Kevin Knox. Carroll is the only Big 12 player to make the list.
