USC’s Caleb Williams, Alabama’s Will Anderson Jr. lead AP All-America team

Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams was one of three Southern California players selected for The Associated Press’ All-America team, published Monday.

Offensive lineman Andrew Vorhees and defensive end Tuli Tuipulotu joined their quarterback to give USC more first-team players than any other school.

Williams, who was named AP Player of the Year last week, became the eighth USC player to win the Heisman over the weekend after scoring 47 touchdowns this season and leading USC to the Pac-12 title game.

The Trojans also had center Brett Neilon and cornerback Mekhi Blackmon selected for the third team.

Alabama edge rusher Will Anderson Jr. was selected to the first team for the second straight season, along with Kansas State running back Deuce Vaughn, who made it as an all-around for the second straight season.

Joining Williams in the All-America First Team backfield are Texas running back Bijan Robinson and Michigan’s Blake Corum.

Michigan had also selected center Olusegun Oluwatimi and kicker Jake Moody for the second team.

The runner-up Wolverines will face TCU No. 3 in the semifinals of the College Football Playoffs on December 31 at the Fiesta Bowl. TCU quarterback Max Duggan and guard Steve Avila formed the second team.

Top-ranked Georgia put two players in first-team defense in tackle Jalen Carter and safety Christopher Smith. Tight end Brock Bowers and linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson were second-team selections.

The Bulldogs meet No. 4 Ohio State in the CFP Peach Bowl semifinals on New Year’s Eve. Wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. was Ohio State’s only All-American first-team, but the Buckeyes added four players to the second team: offensive tackles Paris Johnson Jr. and Dawand Jones, linebacker Tommy Eichenberg, and safety Ronnie Hickman.
