USC WR Marqise Lee, LB Dion Bailey Named Pac-12 Freshmen Of The Year

The USC Trojans have a bright future ahead of them. They have a wide receiver who could be as good (if not better) than a talent like Robert Woods, as Marqise Lee proved to be every bit the talent that his sophomore counterpart was. Lee earned Pac-12 freshmen of the year honors on the offensive side of the football, and he figures to be a terror on offense the next few years. Lee shared the honor with the spectacular De'Anthony Thomas from Oregon.

Dion Bailey proved to be equally talented on the other side of the football, putting up the most tackles on the team in his first year. He won the freshman defensive player of the year honors, and figures to be an anchor for the linebackers in Troy for years to come.

After the jump, view all the All Pac-12 winners, which has seven Trojans on the first team and five on the second team. Check out the full list here.

First team: WR Robert Woods, So., OL Matt Kalil, Jr., DL Nick Perry, Jr., DB T.J. McDonald, Jr., DB Nickell Robey, So., PK Andre Heidari, Fr., ST Rhett Ellison, Sr.

Second team: QB Matt Barkley, Jr., WR Marqise Lee, Fr., OL Khaled Holmes, Jr., DL Wes Horton, Jr., LB Dion Bailey, Fr.

The Pac-12 South champs have one representative on their All-Pac-12 team: Derrick Coleman of the UCLA Bruins made it on the second team for his special teams work.
