Florida State Seminoles football senior defensive lineman Marvin Wilson was named a preseason first team All-American, along with fellow ACC mates Clemson Tigers running back Travis Etienne and quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Miami-Florida Hurricanes defensive lineman Gregory Rousseau, Pittsburgh Panthers defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman and Syracuse Orange safety Andre Cisco

The list was released Tuesday, including several players who have opted out (including Rousseau and Twyman) as well as those who have had their seasons cancelled.

The AP Top 25 poll, released yesterday, followed suit in including teams not playing in fall 2020, but said that those teams won’t be eligible moving forward.
