USC sophomore wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and freshman running back Marcus Lattimore were both named 2010 second team All- Americans by the Walter Camp Football Foundation. The Walter Camp All-America team is voted on by the Football Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors.
Jeffery, a 6-4, 233-pounder from St. Matthews, S.C., set USC school records in both receptions (79) and receiving yards in a season (1,387). He was one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award, which goes to the nation’s top receiver and has been a unanimous first-team All-SEC selection. He was a first-team All-American according to the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA).
Lattimore, a six-foot, 218-pounder from Duncan, S.C., was the only freshman named to either the first or second team unit. He is the consensus National Freshman of the Year and was a unanimous first-team All-SEC first-team selection. Lattimore has carried the ball 248 times for 1,198 yards, the third-highest single-season rushing total in school history. He also scored 19 touchdowns, one shy of the SEC single season record.
***UPDATE, we have just been informed that Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers earned first team honors. Bowers led the nation with 15 1/2 sacks this season***
