Allen Robinson and John Urschel Named AP Third Team All-Americans

Allen Robinson and John Urschel have racked up their fair share of awards and accolades this season. They added another recognition to that growing list yesterday after being named third team All-Americans by The Associated Press.

Here’s a quick recap of Robinson’s achievements for the 2013 season: He was named Big Ten receiver of the year for the second year in a row. Last week, he was named CBSSports.com first team All-American. Robinson has now earned All-American honors from CBSSports.com (1st), Sporting News (1st), Athlon Sports (2nd), SI.com (2nd) and The Associated Press (3rd). Robinson’s combined 174 receptions and 2,445 receiving yards the past two years both rank No. 3 in Big Ten history for consecutive seasons. He also has plenty of Penn State football records to his name, two of the highest single-season reception totals in school history, and two of four receiving totals.

This was the first All-American recognition for John Urschel, who has received plenty of positive coverage for his performance both on and off the field. He was named first-team All-Big Ten pick for a second straight season. Urschel is also a two-time Academic All-American and the winner of the 2013 William V. Campbell Trophy, widely known as the “Academic Heisman.”

Urschel has said he will pursue an NFL career after his graduation this year, and as we all know (and nervously wait), Allen Robinson has yet to make a decision yet about entering into the 2014 NFL draft.
