Oklahoma State’s leading receiver scored another honor today. James Washington has been announced on the ESPN midseason All-America team. With 28 receptions and 647 yards at about the halfway mark, Washington is putting his name in award voters minds.

About the Pokes' main pass catcher:
The Pokes' wide receiver depth is almost as glorious as Mike Gundy's mullet, but everyone knows who leads the group. Washington has touchdown catches in four of five games, four games of at least 120 receiving yards and receptions in 37 consecutive games. The big-play numbers are staggering as he has averaged at least 24 yards per catch in four games. Oh, and he hasn't dropped a single pass when targeted. Washington is the clear favorite for the Biletnikoff Award.
Other Big 12 players that made the cut is Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma tight end Orlando Brown, West Virginia wide receiver David Sills, Oklahoma linebacker Ogbonnia Okoronkwo and Texas safety DeShon Elliot. Heisman hopeful Saquon Barkley out of Penn State also makes the list at running back.
