UGA junior center Warren Ericson has been named to the 2021 Rimington Trophy Watch List, the Rimington Trophy Committee announced on Friday.
Hill is one of 40 centers named to the Rimington list and one of five players from the Southeastern Conference (SEC) included. Other SEC centers named to the list include Ricky Stromberg (Arkansas), Nick Brahms (Auburn), Liam Shanahan (LSU), and Michael Maietti (Missouri).
