Ohio State Leads The World In All-Americans*

Bradenton Herald –  No. 1 Alabama placed four players on The Associated Press All-America team, most of any school, and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson and fellow Heisman Trophy finalists Jabrill Peppers of Michigan and Dede Westbrook of Oklahoma were also first-team selections.

The Crimson Tide and No. 2 Ohio State tied for the most players on the three All-America teams released Monday with six. No. 3 Clemson had five players on the three teams, but none on the first team. Washington, which has a spot in the College Football Playoff team along with Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson, had two players on the second team.

*Yeah Yeah Bama had more on the first team but the real story here is the depth of both Ohio State and Bama.  To have 6 players from each team take up 12 of the total 75 total players selected is bananas.  This should be a nice preview of the final once Bama take care of U Dub and the Buckeyes take out the fighting Dabos.
Quick reminder:  Ohio State replaced 19 key players off of last year’s team and they are right back in the mix.  Returned 3 starters on each side of the ball and still have 6 new All-Americans.  We don’t rebuild, we reload.  Time to plant 6 more trees in Buckeye Grove
PS – BIG Ten showed out this year.
