Heisman Trophy finalists Mac Jones and Divonta Smith have been selected to the Associated Press All-America team, which includes five Alabama players on first-team offense.
Crimson Tide Naji Harris, Alex Leatherwood and center London Dickerson are also first-team picks. When the AB All-America team began to feature two wide receivers and two running backs, Alabama were the first team from the 1980s to run behind the first team to place a quarterback and run the receiver.
Cornerback Patrick Sardine II offers the Crimson Tight Six First Team selection, which is the highest in the country. Alabama’s college football playoff opponent No. 4 Notre Dame this weekend includes attacking guard Aaron Banks and striker Jeremiah Ovus-Goromova, two first-team All-Americans.
Florida’s Kyle Trask has been named in the second team’s quarterback and fellow Hayesman finalist Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence has been selected in the third team quarterbacks in the AP squad released on Monday. Lawrence, who will be the first choice in the next NFL draft, created AB All-America for the first time in his career.
The No. 2 Clemson, who will face No. 3 Ohio State in the CFP semifinals at the Sugar Bowl on Friday night, only picked one other player for the All-America teams: Travis Etienne included all of the first-team players. The senior has been the second team All-American to retreat in the last two seasons.
Ohio State Guard Wyatt Davis is the only player to return as an all-American to the first team in 2020. Davis Cornerback was one of two bucks on the first team with Shawn Wade.
