US PRESSWIRE

The Bruins running back was the only UCLA player named to the first team by CBS Sports.

UCLA Bruins running back Johnathan Franklin was named to the CBS Sports All-America Team, the site revealed on Monday.

The senior star was the only UCLA player named to the team, although the Pac-12 had solid representation -- accounting for four of the players on the offense.

Franklin had a season, and a college career, for the UCLA record books. He set two more records in the Pac-12 championship game, breaking Maurice Jones-Drew's career mark for all-purpose yards (4,688) and Karim Abdul-Jabbar's single-season team rushing record.

He has 1,700 rushing yards on the year with just 268 attempts -- good for an average of 6.3 yards per carry. He has nine games with over 100 yards rushing, the most in the nation. Franklin is ranked third in the Pac-12 in rush attempts, and second in the Pac-12 at total rushing yards. He has the second-most rushing yards since the year 2000 in the Pac-12, totaling 4,369 over his collegiate career.
