Three Bruins selected as AP All-Americans

The Associated Press released its list of 2012 All-Americans on Tuesday and three UCLA Bruins were honored.

Johnathan Franklin, Anthony Barr and Xavier Su'a-Filo were among the players selected as Associated Press All-Americans on Tuesday. Franklin and Barr were both selected to the second-team list while Su'a-Filo was named to the third team.

Franklin rushed for 1,700 yards and 13 touchdowns this season, setting the UCLA career rushing record in the process. He topped the 100-yard mark in nine of the Bruins 13 games including two games with more than 200 yards. Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey, who led the Pac-12 with 1,757 rushing yards, and Wisconsin's Montee Ball were named to the first team.

Barr, a junior linebacker, led the country with 13.5 sacks. The second team All-American selection comes in Barr's first season of playing linebacker. Barr was a running back during his first two seasons at UCLA. Su'a-Filo quickly became one of the best offensive lineman in the country after not playing football for two seasons. He played his freshman season at UCLA before going on a two-year church mission. He returned this season and anchored the Bruins offensive line.
