ACSMA Announces 2016 All-ACC Football Teams

Posted: 39 minutes ago - Updated: 18 minutes ago
Clemson leads with 15 selections, including nine on first team. Florida State's Dalvin Cook and Clemson's Ben Boulware (pictured) were the top vote-getters on offense and defense, respectively.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Clemson, which is set to defend its Atlantic Coast Conference championship later this week, leads all schools with 15 selections to the 2016 All-ACC Football Teams, as voted upon by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA).

The Atlantic Division co-champion Tigers placed nine members on the All-ACC first team (five offense, four defense).

Coastal Division champion Virginia Tech, which will face the Tigers in Saturday night’s Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game in Orlando, had nine total players chosen, as did Atlantic Division co-champion Louisville.

Forty-eight ACSMA members cast ballots for the 2016 All-ACC Football Teams, with three points awarded for each first-team vote, two points for each second-team vote and one point for each third-team selection.

Florida State junior Dalvin Cook, the ACC’s rushing leader with 1,620 yards, leads the overall voting with 139 points. He is joined on the first team by Louisville sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson, who leads the conference in total offense with 410.7 yards per game and set a conference record for touchdown responsibility with 51 (30 passing, 21 rushing).

Rounding out the first-team backfield is Pitt running back James Conner, the 2014 ACC Player of the Year, who battled back from a bout with cancer and a knee injury to re-establish himself as one of college football’s elite players. The first-team receiving trio of Clemson’s Mike Williams, Syracuse’s Amba Etta-Tawo and North Carolina’s Ryan Switzer have combined for 264 receptions, 29 touchdowns and more than 3,600 receiving yards.

Also featured on the offensive first team are two-time ACC Jacobs Blocking Trophy winner Roderick Johnson of Florida State and Clemson tight end Jordan Leggett. The Tigers’ presence is felt across the front line with center Jay Guillermo, tackle Mitch Hyatt and guard Tyrone Crowder all earning first-team selections. They are joined by Pitt guard Dorian Johnson.

Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware, who helps anchor a Tigers’ unit that has allowed just 17 points and a shade over 300 yards per game, leads the All-ACC defensive first-team voting. He is joined by defensive ends DeMarcus Walker of Florida State and Ejuan Price of Pitt; tackles Carlos Watkins of Clemson and Woody Baron of Virginia Tech, and fellow linebackers Micah Kiser of Virginia and Devonte Fields of Louisville.

A pair of Clemson seniors earned first-team spots in the secondary, with Cordrea Tankersley manning one cornerback position and Jadar Johnson chosen at safety. They are joined by Virginia junior safety Quin Blanding and Florida State sophomore cornerback Tavarus McFadden.

Virginia’s Kiser (11.2 per game) and Blanding (10.0) lead the ACC in total tackles. Florida State’s Walker shares the NCAA FBS lead in quarterback sacks with Boston College’s Harold Landry with 15, and Pitt’s Price has 12 to his credit. Price also leads the ACC with 21 total tackles for loss. McFadden’s eight interceptions lead the conference.

Wake Forest kicker Mike Weaver, Pitt explosive returner Quadree Henderson and Virginia punter Nicholas Conte complete the All-ACC first team.

Dayes 240 for 1119 10 TDs

Walton 192 for 1065 14 TDs

Guess who's 3rd team.

2nd teamer needs 50 more carries to get 50 more yards and 4 less TDs.

Lmao.

Go Canes!

2nd teamer plays for guess who.

NC State of course.

Pathetic.

‏@MarkRicht
It is hard for me to believe that we have one of the best defenses in America and only can get one guy as a second team all ACC performer.

Herbieibis

What that tells the herb is we played together as a unit but aside from corn, nobody was a wrecking ball on defense but like I said as a unit they play ver well. Chad "5" Thomas is who I'm waiting on to be that force, maybe by bowl season next year.
S. T. If I recall was a 3 star ranked player, so naturally he wasn't he the top 100, but he played like a 5 star. Best defensive back that ever played at the u.

Go Canes!

What it should tell you is the Billy Bobs of the ACC hate the Canes.
'
Look at Walton's numbers against the NC State's guy and tell me how he's more deserving of 2nd team if you need further proof.

TruCane81

Yeah Herb. He was a running back.

Glad they made the switch.

The Dude

Damn Richt getting in on it too.

TruCane81

No wonder he went under the radar. I didn't know Sean only played 2A.

Butch's recruiting was lights out and player development probably the g.o.a.t.

Its still hard to believe my all time favorite defensive player ( Barry Sanders on o) died so young and senselessly.

His story should be the NRA'S go to anecdote for gun ownership and self defense training.

To this day I never stand in front of doors if I hear something weird in the house.

BEERicane

Yearby to NFL?!

The Dude

Sean Taylor was not a 3*. He was the highest rated prospect in Miami that year. He played RB, DB and LB and was outstanding at every position.

So am I. The Canes got robbed. The Canes were 8-4; #2 scoring defense in the ACC. Near the top in most defensive categories. Terrible

I will not start to mention the robbery that took place on offense.

mi@mic@ne

The ACC cannot be taken seriously unless the old league headquarters is broken up and all the teams that were brought in after leaving the big easy get their representation

mi@mic@ne

but winning will solve everything

Go Canes!

Yes Epi, there's 48 of them.

Clemson, which is set to defend its Atlantic Coast Conference championship later this week, leads all schools with 15 selections to the 2016 All-ACC Football Teams, as voted upon by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA).

Go Canes!

The Work 11-28 (more on DJ Johnson coming)
**Well, it looks like Coach Kuligowski went out to California today and did exactly what he wanted – lock up D.J. Johnson. Miami had been a bit worried over the past few weeks with his flirtation with Washington, but moreso because they felt that his parents were trying to keep him closer to home. Johnson, though, I’ve been told was all Cane and his brother was pushing big time for Miami as well. Johnson just posted this tweet and just messaged me that he wants to do an interview tonight to clear up the rumors of his commitment. Stay tuned for that story.


**Some big news at the running back spot…I reported a few weeks ago that Robert Burns was working towards being able to enroll early at Miami – a Gulliver source confirmed tonight that Burns is “good to go” and will be enrolling in January. And Burns is not expected to be the only running back in this class, as Miami remains confident that Dematha Catholic (Md.) Anthony McFarland will be a Hurricane. Running backs coach Thomas Brown was up in Maryland on the first day of the contact period to in-home with McFarland, signifying how much of a priority he is for the class. There is also a reason why Mark Richt didn’t seem too upset to learn that Joseph Yearby would be declaring for the draft. I feel comfortable predicting him in the class.

**Miami is trending back in the right direction with Miramar defensive back Brian Edwards. When he decommitted from the Canes, the immediate concern was Florida, who had an offer on the table for Edwards contingent upon him committing to them on the spot. As I had posted at the time, Edwards wanted some attention from other schools, which was not going to happen with him being committed to Miami. Louisville and Colorado have been persistent in recruiting him as well, but Hurricanes coaches Ephraim Banda and Mike Rumph went in-home with Edwards tonight and are trying to seal the deal. Miami coaches view him as a potential key piece to the defensive back class – as a player who can play either cornerback or free safety. He will visit Colorado December 9th and is in the process of setting dates for Miami and Louisville. The major factor in Miami’s favor is Edwards’ mother – as a source close to Edwards put it, “She’s involved. She’s gonna have a lot to say in the end. They know that.”

**My best guess right now is that Southridge ATH Antwan Collier will be in this class for Miami. There are a handful of people within the staff who are advocating hard for Collier to receive an offer, regardless of what happens with the rest of Miami’s defensive back targets. I believe it’s only a matter of time before the Canes offer. He is being recruited as a safety and Coach Banda will be in at Southridge tomorrow to speak with him – so there could be more developments with him this week.

**Another prospect who is in a similar spot as Collier is Dillard defensive end Jordan Wright, who Mike Rumph and Ephraim Banda went to check in on today. Miami has maintained contact with Wright through the process and are keeping him in the back pocket if they decide they want to add another pass rusher in the class.

**I can confirm that Miami has not stopped recruiting Cyrus Fagan, FSU safety commit. I reported very early on in the process for Fagan that Miami thought he had a spectacular unofficial visit with his entire family in the spring. Ephraim Banda will get Fagan and his family on campus for an official visit and we will see if he can make some magic happen.

**A bit of news on the 2018 class – UF has been recruiting Miami commit D.J. Ivey very hard, and he even visited a few weeks back for their game against South Carolina, but a source close to Ivey said he is not attracted to Gainesville and only sees himself playing in his hometown. Ivey missed this season with a fractured ankle, but look for him to be a quick riser in the offseason circuit.

I don't know much about some of these out-of-state recruits, but if these 2017 recruits are as good as the 2016 recruits, the Canes will be unstoppable next season

Saw this on CIS. If true its extremely impressive. Talk about halftime adjustments:

Over the course of the entire season, Miami has allowed 37 TOTAL points in the 4th quarter.

TonyCane

Corn Elder is not first team? He will be picked higher (1st round) than the two lesserlings that made that list ahead of him. For me, the greatest honor should be how high you go in the draft.

TonyCane

Hopefully now with CM Richt, when recruits say that Miami is their dream school, they mean it. It makes me think of this quote from the classic film Excalibur..."A dream for some. A nightmare for others!"

I just read a plane crashed that had the Brazilian national soccer team on it.

Not the national team.

Still tragic, but for a second I thought we just lost Neymar & company.

Use to hate this.. but now it seems accurate

TonyCane

I think Stacey Coley might have been an FSU commit. Or at the very least it was down to us and the Seminoles

UMike

Coley didnt flip, I think Yearby was the last FSU flip.

CaneRock

Last year's O would've beaten FSU this year...scored more points against VT...bout the same vs GT...but both Os were $h!tty against UNC.

#trendingup?...LOL?...gotta hold on to something from your favorite regime huh?...LOL.

UMike

11 points from being 11-1, so were are trending up, but I think the offense needs lots of work. Finished off the year well, but some situations were still very conservative imo. If Kaaya does leave, should be interesting to see who takes over. Allison couldn't beat out Rosier. Perry adds another dimension, but would be a true freshman. I like a RB tandem of Walton/Homer if the OL can block

CaneRock

Correct UMike, Yearby was the last FSU flip. Longshot, but I hope we can flip Jeudy from Bama...Coley & maybe Njoku leaving should be an easy sell.

CaneRock

11 points from being 11-1 because the D is better, not because the O is trending up LOL.

Go Canes!

Come on CR there was a bad stretch, everyone saw that.

But this team finished stronger than it has in who knows how long, four straight easy wins including a blowout of Pitt and scoring more points against NC State than FSU and Clemson did.

Kaaya only threw one pick in November that wasn't even his fault, the run game improved, Richards blew up, Jackson came on and other freshmen played as well as any rookies in the country.

Our top recruits are solid and selling the U and we are gaining momentum as a program.

Yes we are trending up.

UMike

I meant the team is trending up...and the O is from the 4 game skid. But the O needs to be improved a lot imo

UMike

Scary thing is, the O could take a step back next year. IMO, if Kaaya and Njoku leave along with Coley there will be a big drop in talent. For all Kaaya's struggles the line up behind him isn't any better and Perry isnt on campus yet. The OL will be the same. Guys like Homer, Mullins, Herdon etc will have to step up

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | November 29, 2016 at 09:17 AM

Agree 100%

If Kaaya goes the next guy has to come in and play well if we're going to complete.

SinisterCane

Just cause Kaaya has been here forever doesn't mean it will equate to more wins next season. So unless Kaaya take some Leadership pills and developed better pocket awareness expect more of the same next season with him under center

SinisterCane

Has Kaaya shown anything that he's sick of fuckin' losing?

Posted by: Go Canes! | November 29, 2016 at 09:08 AM

No doubt.

UMike

Sinister...I understand where you're from, but who behind him would be better? Do you honestly think Rosier or Allison give us a better chance at winning? I don't think his return guarantees more wins, but I think it puts us in a better position to win... unless Perry is lights out but he hasnt even signed yet.

Also, I think it can be argued Kaaya got better as the season went on, especially the last 4 games. He actually scrambled and moved around, got ride of it quicker etc. Hell he even ran for a 1st down! lol

Ohio_Cane

Don't be surprised if Rosier transfers or just isn't on the football team next year. Especially if Kaaya stays. Unless he wants to be a career backup and get his degree, which is just fine with me. He can be GT's QB on scout team

Go Canes!

This singular obsession with one guy makes no sense to me.

I realize most times the QB affects the game more than any other player but this inisistance that Kaaya wins or loses every single game for this team is ludicrous.

UMike

Perry looks to have the goods. He is very mobile but keeps his eyes downfield. Looks like he runs a similar offense and actually gives us another option on the read option. But he is kinda tiny and not terribly accurate...but these are only JR highlights...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3tCogsBHKY

Ohio_Cane

IMO, Kosi Perry needs 1+ years in the weight room and wouldn't be a starter as a freshman. JMO. He's skinny. Although a lot of our guys transformed their bodies in a few months, so maybe they could add enough weight to him by August.

UMike

Ohio..he is definitely skinny. But thats my point, IMO we dont have anyone right now or coming in that would be better then Kaaya. BTW, Perry has some horse teeth damn! lol

SinisterCane

Posted by: UMike | November 29, 2016 at 10:09 AM

Posted by: Go Canes! | November 29, 2016 at 10:23 AM

Kaaya's attributes are EFFin' replaceable and please don't talk about his exp because it's not good to begin with. Kaaya is nothing more but a role when he should be leading this team

UMike

Sinister...maybe all that is true. But who on the roster right now or coming is is better and will give us a better chance to win?

Go Canes!

Posted by: SinisterCane | November 29, 2016 at 10:38 AM

Ask the Bull Gator booster club how much they'd pay for our role player to graduate transfer to Gainesville for next season.

CaneRock

Doesn't the NBA's draft combine let College underclassmen show their wears, without losing eligibility?

If so, why doesn't the NFL do that?

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | November 29, 2016 at 10:45 AM

There is no one, obviously.

But scapegoating Kaaya is the easy way out.

UMike

Seemingly our two next best options are Allison and Perry. Allison couldn't be out the back-up and Perry hasn't even signed. Now either of these two kids could be an All-American, but at the moment neither seem to be better options than Kaaya...IMO

UMike

couldn't beat out**

Sinister... how can yo be certain Kaaya never chewed someones ass out for anything? We cant prove or disprove that. Do you thin Allison is better then Kaaya? And Allison was healthy enough in the fall to compete and he lost out to Rosier. I do NOT think Kaaya is elite, but the options behind him done seem any better, at least right now.

Go Canes!

Sure.

This season alone he threw the potential game tying TD against FSU and brought them back from down 20-3 at the Irish to take a 27-20 lead with about 5 minutes left. Believe he completed 11-12 in a row at one point. He was also about perfect this month in beating a Pitt team that beat Penn State and Clemson.

Go Canes!

And I though to Sinister injuries were just excuses. I mean they were when Linder had one this year wasn't it?

Barry Jackson notes


The Chicago Bears have displayed particular interest in UM junior quarterback Brad Kaaya, sending three representatives to the Nov. 5 UM-Pittsburgh game.

One NFC scout insisted last week that Kaaya needs to return to school, and ESPN’s Todd McShay said: "Kaaya will be more reliant than other guys in this class on finding the right system. He's a good fit for a West Coast scheme. But he won't be for everyone because he doesn't have the arm strength to play in certain windy-weather locales. Kaaya will need to add bulk and get stronger before he can be handed the keys to a franchise. I'd like to see him return to school and get another year of experience playing in a pro-style system."

This after 37 starts but lets give Kaaya another year to figure it out

IMO, Kosi Perry needs 1+ years in the weight room and wouldn't be a starter as a freshman. JMO. He's skinny. Although a lot of our guys transformed their bodies in a few months, so maybe they could add enough weight to him by August.

Collin Kaepernick was 170lb going into his freshman year at Nevada. He put up some great numbers as a freshman.

The NFL's an innate ability league, not a what you did in College league. Did anybody see Brady being this good?...Prescott?

And while arm strength is important, I don't think it's a top priority. I'd judge a QB by His eyes,brains,feet, and then arm.

With that said, I think Watson goes first...unless Kaaya blow em' away.

Pompano Beach Douglas three-star offensive guard Corey Gaynor flipped from Minnesota to Miami on Tuesday

Go Canes!

Pretty crazy the ACC currently has four quarterbacks who be top 5-10 picks.

Ariz: Miami offered Gaynor on Saturday prior to the game against Duke and view him as the potential center of the future. Coaches will in-home visit with him on Friday. He was previously committed to Minnesota before the game.

Multiple local coaches have described Gaynor as "nasty" and "not a guy you want to face". He joins an offensive class of Navaughn Donaldson, Zach Dykstra, and Zalon'tae Hillery. The Canes are also still heavily pursuing Kai-Leon Herbert and Tedarrell Slaton of American Heritage.
