West Virginia safety Alonzo Addae has been named to the 2021 Lott IMPACT Trophy watchlist, the organization announced Tuesday.
RS Senior @alonzoaddae recently remarked his main motivation for next season is to build up his teammates the next generation of Mountaineers.

The award, named after hall of famer Ronnie Lott, goes to college football’s “Impact Player of the Year”. IMPACT is an acronym that stands for integrity, maturity, performance, academics, community and tenacity.
Addae transferred to WVU before the 2019 season from New Hampshire. After sitting out the 2019 season to fulfill transfer requirements, Addae had a breakout season with the Mountaineers in 2020. As the team’s starting safety Addae finished third on the team with 61 total tackles to go along with two interceptions and five pass deflections.
Addae originally signed with New Hampshire out of Canada in 2016. After redshirting as a true freshman, Addae played in 24 games for the Rams over the next two seasons with 61 total tackles and 12 pass breakups.
Other Big 12 players on the watch list include Iowa State linebacker Mike Rose, Kansas State safety Jahron McPherson, TCU cornerback Tre’vius Hodges-Tomlinson and Texas cornerback Josh Thompson.
