Ole Miss had a total of six players named All-SEC by The Associated Press today, five of them on the first team.
OL Laremy Tunsil and TE Evan Engram made the first-team offense, DT Robert Nkemdiche, CB Senquez Golson and S Cody Prewitt the first-team defense.
Tony Conner, the Rebels’ fifth defensive back who plays near the line of scrimmage, was named to the second-team. There were no honorable mention selections.
Tunsil: A sophomore, he was named mid-season All-American by three different outlets and as the starting left tackle has given up only one sack this year, just two for his career.
Engram: A sophomore, he leads SEC tight ends in receiving yards (651) and yards per catch (17.6). His receiving yards are the most in a season for an Ole Miss tight end.
Nkemdiche: A sophomore, he was a mid-season All-American by two outlets. The constant subject of double teams and other creative blocking, Nkemdiche has 33 tackles, three tackles for loss and two sacks.
Golson: A senior, his nine interceptions lead the SEC and rank second nationally. He was one of only three unanimous selections.
Prewitt: A first-team AP All-American last season, Prewitt has 60 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and two interceptions.
Conner: A sophomore, he’s second on the team in tackles with 64, leads the team in tackles for loss with nine, has a sack and three pressures.
