Calais Campbell, a 6-foot-8, 265-pound, defensive end was the only Miami defensive player named to the ACC's first-team.
He tied for the conference lead with 10 sacks, which ties him for 10th on UM's single-season record list.
Campbell also had 49 tackles including 20 for a loss. He added three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery for the nation's fifth ranked defense.
The Denver product has a bright future ahead of himself in the NFL, but said it will wait at least another year although he did admit he has thought about leaving early.
"I am definitely coming back next year," said Campbell in the UM locker room following Miami's 17-7 victory over Boston College.
He knows that Mario Williams was the first pick of the 2006 draft as a 6-foot-7 defensive end and when Campbell does decide to leave, he will be a high pick.
Campbell and the Hurricanes will be headed to the MPC Computers Bowl on Dec. 31 in Boise, Idaho.
"I'll go anywhere," Campbell said. "It doesn't matter to me. I just want to play football. I've never been (to Boise) before, but it sounds real good to me."
