Alabama, Ohio State and Jackson lead AP All-Americans
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.
Jackson won the Heisman Saturday, finishing well ahead of Clemson’s Deshaun Watson and Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield.
The three quarterbacks lined up similarly on the All-America teams with Watson second-team and Mayfield third-team.
