This is the second of the five major All-America teams to be released. Earlier Beasley was a first-team selection by the Walter Camp Foundation.
Beasley, a second-team AP All-American last year, is the first Clemson player to be
named first-team All-American by the Associated Press since 2011 when Dwayne Allen
(TE) and Sammy Watkins (all-purpose) were both named. Beasley is the first Clemson
defensive player to make the first-team according to AP since Da’Quan Bowers in
Beasley led the ACC in sacks with year with 11 and in tackles for loss with 18.5. He
will leave Clemson as its all-time sack leader with 32, and ranks tied for fifth in
ACC history in that category.
The native of Adairsville, Ga. was earlier named a finalist for the Lombardi Award,
the Bednarik Award and the Hendricks Award and was chosen ACC Defensive Player of
the Year by the ACC Sports Media and ACC Coaches.
Beasley is a big reason Clemson is ranked number-one in the nation in total defense,
yards per play allowed and tackles for loss. He and the Tigers will face Oklahoma
in the Russell Athletic Bowl on December 29 in Orlando.
