USC DE Morgan Breslin named finalist for Hendricks Award

Harry How

USC Trojans defensive end Morgan Breslin was named as a finalist for the Hendricks Award.

As one of the top defensive ends in the country, USC Trojans junior Morgan Breslin is among the six finalists for the 2012 Hendricks Award.

Breslin, a junior college transfer, is tied for first in the Pac-12 with 12 sacks on the season. The 6'2", 250-pound transfer from Diablo Valley College is also tied for second place in the Pac-12 with 18 tackles for loss. He was fifth on the Trojans with 53 tackles this season to go with four pass deflections and a fumble recovery.

Last year's starting defensive end, Nick Perry, was a finalist for the award before Breslin replaced him on the defensive line this season. Perry is now playing with the Green Bay Packers.

Also on the list of finalists are Cornellius Carradine of Florida State, Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina, Sam Montgomery of LSU, Texas A&M's Damontre Moore and another Florida State end in Bjoern Werner.

A vote for the winner will be conducted Dec. 4 and a winner will be announced on Dec. 5.
