Penn State Football’s Olu Fashanu Named To AP Midseason All-America Second Team
Penn State football offensive left tackle Olu Fashanu was named to the AP’s midseason All-America second team, the Associated Press announced Wednesday.
Fashanu was the only Penn State player to be named to either team. Additionally, the fourth-year was named to the AP’s preseason first-team before the season.
Joining the Waldorf, Maryland, native on the offensive second team is Missouri’s Javon Foster. Meanwhile, Notre Dame’s Joe Alt and Oregon State’s Taliese Fuaga were named to the first team.
Fashanu has not allowed a sack in his entire collegiate career. He owns a 92.9 pass-blocking grade and only one pressure on 155 pass-protection snaps.
Additionally, Fashanu has earned national recognition from multiple other organizations. He was named a midseason All-American by the Reese’s Senior Bowl last week, and he was also nominated for the William V. Campbell trophy.
Fashanu and the Nittany Lions are 6-0 and ranked No. 7 overall prior to this weekend’s clash at No. 3 Ohio State.
