by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson defensive lineman Christian Wilkins was named to Fox Sport's midseason All-America team that was released on Thursday.

Wilkins has 31 tackles including 8.5 for loss, three sacks, four pass deflections, 11 quarterback pressures, and a fumble recovery in 360 snaps on the season. He also has a receiving touchdown, a 10-yard rush that converted a crucial 4th down and a blocked field goal that were critical plays in the win over North Carolina State.

"The versatile 310-pound end/tackle has been Clemson’s top pass-rusher while also running on a fake punt, catching a touchdown pass and blocking a field goal," Steward Mandel said.
