It’s official. Roquan Smith is one of the best linebackers in America.
As if Georgia’s players, coaches and fans didn’t already know.
Teammate Isaiah Wynn was named a second-team All-American by AP, and they were the only Georgia players included on the organization’s three teams.
The All-America selections are the latest honors for Smith in the week-plus following his MVP performance in Georgia’s victory in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 2. He won the Butkus Award and has been named to a variety of All-SEC teams, including earning SEC Defensive Player of the Year marks.
More quietly, senior left tackle Wynn has accrued a few postseason honors as well, adding his second-team All-America selection to his All-SEC recognition.
Three players from Oklahoma, Georgia’s opponent in the Rose Bowl, were selected as first-team All-Americans, all on offense: quarterback Baker Mayfield, left tackle Orlando Brown and tight end Mark Andrews.
