USC’s Williams and Alabama’s Anderson lead the AP All-America team

Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams was one of three Southern California players selected to the Associated Press All-America team announced Monday.

Offensive lineman Andrew Voorhees and linebacker Thuli Tuipulotu joined their quarterback to give USC more first-team players than any other school. The AP All-America Team is presented by Regions Bank.

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

The Trojans also had center Brett Nealon and cornerback Mehi Blackmon named to the third team.

Alabama’s Will Anderson Jr. was selected to the first team for the second straight season, along with Kansas State running back Deuce Vaughn, who was named an all-purpose player for the second year in a row.

Joining Williams in the first-team All-America backfield are Texas running back Bijan Robinson and Michigan running back Blake Corum.

Michigan also had second-team selections by center Olusegun Oluwatimi and kicker Jake Moody.

The second-seeded Wolverines will face No. 3 TCU in the College Football Playoff semifinals at the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 31. The Horned Frogs’ lone first-team All-American was linebacker Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson. TCU linebacker Max Duggan and guard Steve Avila made the second team.

Top-ranked Georgia placed two first-team defensive players with tackle Jalen Carter and safety Christopher Smith. Tight end Brock Bowers and linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson were named to the second team.

The Bulldogs will face No. 4 Ohio State in the CFP Peach Bowl semifinals on New Year’s Eve. Wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. was Ohio State’s lone first-team All-American, but the Buckeyes added four second-teamers: offensive linemen Parris Johnson Jr. and Dawand Jones, linebacker Tommy Eichenberg and linebacker Ronnie Hickman.
