Heisman Trophy finalists Mack Jones and DeVonta Smith have been selected to The Associated Press All-America team, which includes a team of five Alabama players in the first-team offense.
The Crimson Tide overtook Alex Leatherwood and center Landon Dickerson, leaving Nazi Harris behind. No. 1 Alabama is the first team since 1980, when the AP All-America team began featuring two wide receivers and two running backs, one to keep a quarterback, a running back and a receiver on the first team.
Cornerback Patrick Sartain II gives six first-team selections to the most Crimson Tides in the country. No. 4 Notre Dame, Alabama’s College Football Playoff rival this weekend, offensive guard Aaron Banks and linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koromah have two first-team All-Americans.
Florida’s Kyle Truss was voted second team quarterback and fellow Heisman finalist Trevor Lawrence of Clemson as the third team quarterback in the AP teams released on Monday. Lawrence, potentially a first-time pick in the next NFL draft, became AP All-America for the first time in his career.
No. 2 Clemson, who will face No. 3 Ohio State in the CFP semifinals in the Sugar Bowl on Friday night, had only one other player selected to the All-America teams: running back Travis Itten made the first team as all Thi – objective player. The senior has been the second-team All-American to return in the last two seasons.
Ohio State guard Wyatt Davis is the only player to repeat as a first-team All-American after making it in 2020. Davis is one of two Buckeyes on the first team along with cornerback Sean Wade.
