2012 Preseason All-American Team
About a week ago I started releasing my Preseason All Conference teams and today I wrap it up by releasing my 2012 All-American Team!
18 teams received at least one selection on my 1st-Team All-American list and it should come as no surprise that Alabama and LSU lead the way with the Tide having three 1st-Team selections (8 overall) and LSU having two 1st-Team selections (7 overall). USC who will probably be preseason AP #1 or #2 has three 1st-Team players (5 overall) while Arkansas and Texas A&M despite having zero 1st-Team selections have five players each. An overall 50 different schools had at least one player on my four teams! The SEC naturally led the way with 38 selections while the Pac-12 was 2nd with 18 players and the ACC 3rd with 17.

Every day now thru June 12th, I will post both magazine pages on each team that day and you can get an early look on how I breakdown your favorite team.
