Here Are The Big 12 Players On The Preseason AP All-American Team

With the college football season set to kickoff with five games this Saturday, the Associated Press has released their preseason All-America teams. The AP has announced their first and second team units, with a few Big 12 players getting the nod. 

One player from Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Texas made the cut. Perhaps it's not a major surprise, but all three players are on the offensive side of the ball. Check out the three players below, plus one notable snub.  

First-Team Offense

WR - James Washington, Sr., Oklahoma State
T - Orlando Brown, Jr., Oklahoma
T - Connor Williams, Jr., Texas

Two offensive tackles made the cut for the Big 12. Connor Williams is already one of the best NFL OT prospects, while Brown is a true mauler at 6-foot-8, 345-pounds. Washington is one of the most dynamic player in college football. A home run threat, Washington caught 71 passes for 1,380 yards (an absurd 19.4 average) and 10 TDs.

The Big 12 had no players make the first-team defense or second team offense or defense. The most notable snub is Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield, who was behind Sam Darnold and reigning Heisman winner Lamar Jackson. Mayfield was a third-team All-American last year and it looks like he's stuck in the same place entering this season.
