USC Trojans sophomore WR Marqise Lee was officially named a unanimous All-American Friday after the FWAA released their list and joined the consensus.

According to USC's athletic department, Lee is the school's first unanimous All-American since LB Rey Maualuga. Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register also added that Lee is the 27th unanimous All-American in the history of program.

Lee has already won the 2012 Biletnikoff Award for the nation's top receiver as well as the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year award. He is a finalist for the 2012 Hornung Award for the nation's most versatile player.

Lee set conference records this season for receptions (112) and receiving yards (1,680) while also leading the nation in receptions. Overall, Lee found paydirt 15 times in 2012 with 14 of his touchdowns coming on receptions and one coming a kick return. Lee averaged 28.6 yards on his 28 kick returns throughout his sophomore campaign.
