To be nominated, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade-point average, have attained sophomore academic and athletic standing, be a varsity starter or key reserve and be nominated by the sports information director.

Golic graduated from the College of Arts and Letters with a degree in film, television and theatre and had a 3.429 GPA. He is currently enrolled in the graduate studies program.

Te'o is a design major in the College of Arts and Letters and has a 3.324 GPA. He will graduate in December.

Notre Dame forward Jack Cooley was named to the John R. Wooden Award Preseason Top 50, the Los Angeles Athletic Club announced.
