Lee, Ertz unanimous All-America football selections

By the Pac-12 Conference

WALNUT CREEK, Calif.—The Pac-12 Conference was well-represented on the college football All-America squads, led by USC sophomore WR Marqise Lee and Stanford senior tight end Zach Ertz who were unanimous selections.

It marks the sixth consecutive season that the Pac-12 has had a unanimous selection. Lee, the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year and Biletnikoff Award winner, was USC's 27th unanimous selection all-time. Ertz, who leads FBS tight ends in receptions (66) and receiving yards (837), was Stanford's seventh unanimous selection all-time.

Six other Pac-12 football players were consensus selections, including Oregon senior RB Kenjon Barner, Arizona sophomore RB Ka'Deem Carey, Stanford junior OL David Yankey, Utah senior DL Star Lotulelei, Arizona State junior DL Will Sutton, and Oregon State DB Jordan Poyer. In addition, UCLA senior RB Johnathan Franklin was a Football Writers All-America selection.

To earn consensus honors, one must be selected first team on at least two of the five All-America teams and be listed on the most first-team All-America teams relative to other players at that position. For positions with more than one player represented on the first team, a corresponding number of players may earn a consensus billing. The organizations used in the consensus chart - American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News, and Walter Camp Foundation.
