Redshirt junior running back Jay Ajayi has been named as one of the 12 Players to Watch in 2014 by the Touchdown Club of Columbus.

Boise State has had previous players named to the same watch list, including former running back Jeremy Avery and former quarterback Kellen Moore.

Moore was named by the organization as the top quarterback in the nation twice and the award was eventually named after him.

Ajayi will join the rest of the watch list at the introduction banquet in Columbus, Ohio on Feb. 8 alongside another notable name, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill, whom the Broncos will face on Oct. 25 at Bronco Stadium.

Ajayi was third in the Mountain West in 2013 in rushing yards with 1,425 yards on 254 attempts. He also was second in rushing touchdowns with 19 in 13 games.
