A little bit of news on an otherwise sleepy Sunday afternoon ...
That's right. Despite somehow not being a unanimous All-Big 12 First Team selection, Corey Coleman was named to the First Team AP All-American team today along with his brothers-in-arms Spencer Drango and Andrew Billings. Baylor's 3 players tied for the most in the country with Alabama. Baylor didn't have any other players named to the Second or Third teams, which you can view here.
As far as the rest of the Big 12 goes, TCU's Josh Doctson joined Coleman as a First Team WR, Oklahoma 's Baker Mayfield was tabbed to lead the Second Team as QB alongside KSU's Morgan Burns, OU's Erik Striker was named to the Second Team as a LB, and Texas Tech's Jakeem Grant made the Third Team. The only somewhat startling omission from these lists is Oklahoma State's Emmanuel Ogbah, considering his gaudy stats this year and the fact that he was named Co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year with Billings.
Congrats to everyone named to the teams, but particularly to our Baylor Bears! Since we already know Coleman is leaving and Drango doesn't have a choice (because he's a senior), I'll now spend a moment praying that Billings decides to come back to make it 2 consecutive First Team selections.
