Marqise Lee named AFCA All-American

Stephen Dunn

The American Football Coaches Association named their All-American team on Wednesday, and not surprisingly, USC wide receiver Marqise Lee was on the first team. Lee currently is the top receiver in college football, with 112 receptions on the season.

To the surprise of no one, USC wide receiver Marqise Lee was named a first team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association on Wednesday. Lee was one of six players from the Pac-12 conference to be named to either the first team offense or defense.

And with the incredible stats he put up in 2012, it's no surprise that he was given the honor.

As things stand Lee ranks No. 1 in college football with 112 receptions and is second only to Baylor's Terrence Williams with 1,680 receiving yards on the season. His 14 touchdown catches trail only Stedman Bailey of West Virginia and Clemson's DeAndre Hopkins and on October 27, Lee set a Pac-12 receiving record with 345 yards against Arizona. Not a bad season for Lee, who is only a true sophomore and will return to USC next year.

In addition to the AFCA All-American team, Lee is also expected to be named one of the finalists for the Heisman Trophy early next week. The award will be handed out in New York City on December 8.

Lee is ranked fifth in ESPN's most recent "Heisman Watch."
