Only Four Vols Selected to Preseason All-SEC Teams

    by -

    After landing three defenders on the All-SEC First Team last year, Tennessee had only four players overall selected to the All-SEC teams at SEC Media Days this year.

    Tennessee had nine players on the SEC Media Days preseason All-SEC teams last year. This year, the Vols only had four players voted onto the teams, and Tennessee has no first-team selections this time.

    Offensive lineman Jashon Robertson landed on the second-team offensive line, and Evan Berry was voted as the second-team return specialist (SEC Media Days doesn’t differentiate between punt and kick returners). Wide receiver Jauan Jennings was chosen as a third-team receiver while Trevor Daniel also landed on the third-team as a punter.

    The Vols had no first-team selections and no defensive players on any of the All-SEC teams.

    Alabama had a record 10 players voted to the All-SEC first team. The top three vote-getters for this year’s All-SEC selections were Minkah Fitzpatrick (Alabama), Calvin Ridley (Alabama) and Derrius Guice (LSU).
