Saquon Barkley joined an elite group of Penn State running backs on Wednesday.

Barkley was named one of the 10 semifinalists for the Doak Walker Award and for the Maxwell Award.

Larry Johnson is the lone Nittany Lion to win the Doak Walker Award but Ki-Jana Carter and Curtis Enis were finalists in 1994 and 1997, respectively.

Barkley is the lone Big Ten running back on the Doak Walker Award list.
