Kentucky’s Jordan Jones has been named Third-Team All-American by Athlon Sports, the publication announced on Tuesday.
A standout linebacker for the Wildcats, Jones led the Southeastern Conference and ranked 16th nationally in solo tackles per game last season with 5.7 per game, as well as ranking third in total tackles per game with 8.4. He totaled a team-high 109 tackles and led Kentucky with 15.5 tackles for loss on the year.
Jones adds today’s honor to his Athlon and Southern Pigskin Preseason First-Team All-SEC selections.
This LSU fan likes him, too:
