USC's Drake London Named To Pro Football Focus All-American First Team

Dec 10, 2021

LOS ANGELES — USC junior wide receiver Drake London — despite playing in just the first 8 games of the season before being sidelined with an injury — was named to the 2021 Pro Football Focus All-American first team, becoming the Trojans' 170th All-American first teamer.

London also was named to the All-American second teams by Football Writers and Walter Camp. Several other All-American teams will be announced soon, including AP, Sporting News and Football Coaches.

Earlier this week, London was named the 2021 Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year and made the All-Pac-12 first team.

Before suffering a broken ankle on a tackle while catching a touchdown late in the first half of Game 8, London had 88 receptions for 1,084 yards with 7 TDs in just 7.5 games. He was a semifinalist for the 2021 Biletnikoff Award and Maxwell Award. He was on pace to break Biletnikoff Award winner Lee's 2012 USC season records in catches (118) and receiving yards (1,721). He had 5 games this season with 10 or more catches and 6 with at least 130 receiving yards. He and Texas Tech's Michael Crabtree in 2007 are the only Power 5 players with 88 catches through 8 games. He is the only Trojan to twice have 15 or more catches in a game and the first Trojan with 5 consecutive 100-yard receiving outings since Lee in 2012 (he has 9 total in his career). He had a reception in 21 consecutive games, dating to 2019.
