This season marks the seventh year of the Rimington Trophy, which recognizes the most outstanding center in college football. The spring watch list consists of 39 players and will be updated once prior to the beginning of the season.
Nick Jones, a 6-3, 295 senior out of Bowdon, Ga., last year was part of an offensive line that ranked second in the league for fewest sacks allowed (20 in 363 pass attempts). The offense also ranked second in points scored (29.5 ppg) and third in total offense (391.2).
He has started 29 games in his career including 19 in a row, with starts coming at both the center and guard positions. He has twice been named an SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week.
