During the dead time between the conference championship games and bowl season, national media outlets continue to release All-Conference and All-American honors.
First and foremost is Freddie’s favorite Phil Steele (although Cole Cubelic could surpass Steele before next season). Known primarily as a preseason college football expert, you’ll appreciate Steele’s postseason analysis.
- Jon Toth: Fourth Team All-American, First Team All-SEC
- Jordan Jones: Second Team All-SEC
- Mike Edwards: Third Team All-SEC
- Boom Williams: Third Team All-SEC
Steele did not feature an All-Freshman team, but that doesn’t mean Benny Snell didn’t receive any accolades today. Snell was one of two SEC running backs on the 247 Sports True Freshman All-American Team. Here’s what they had to say about Benny:
“The emergence of Kentucky football during the second half of the season coincided with the emergence of Snell. He rushed for over 1,000 yards and scored 13 touchdowns highlighted by a 192 yard, two-touchdown performance against Missouri. Snell was a three-star according to the 247Sports Composite and 247Sports out of Westerville, Ohio.”
