USC Trojans wide receiver Marqise Lee was named a first team All-American by The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Lee, a 6'1 sophomore, has been racking up awards since the Trojans regular season ended. In addition to his first team All-American honor, he won the Biletnikoff Award and the Warfield Award which are both given to the nation's top wide receiver.

The former Serra High standout was phenomenal for the Trojans in 2012, leading the nation in receptions with 112, and finishing second in the nation in receiving yards with 1,680. His name routinely surfaced in Heisman Trophy conversations for most of the 2012 campaign, but the team's disappointing second half of the season might have cost the dynamic receiver a legitimate shot at taking home the prize.

Lee's most impressive showing in his sophomore season came on Oct. 27 when he caught 16 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns in USC's 39-36 loss to the Arizona Wildcats.
