Five Clemson players landed on Athlon’s preseason All-American teams.
Only one scheduled Clemson ACC opponent has a player on either of the first and second teams in Boston College, with running back AJ Dillon and safety Lukas Denis, as two of four Eagles on any of four teams (fourth-team punt returner Michael Walker and defensive lineman Zach Allen also representing BC). Miami safety Jaquan Johnson joins Clemson’s trio as an ACC first-team representative.
Wisconsin led all teams nationally with seven selections across the four teams, followed by Ohio State (6). Regular-season finale foe South Carolina's Deebo Samuel was named second-team as a receiver and a kick returner.
Hyatt, Ferrell, Wilkins and Lawrence all earned All-American honors and first-team All-ACC last season.
