Kansas junior defensive end Dorance Armstrong Jr. was named a preseason third-team All-American by Athlon Sports, the magazine announced Tuesday.
In the magazine’s college football preview, six KU players were honored on its four preseason all-Big 12 teams.
Armstrong, who had 10 sacks and 20 tackles for loss last year, was a first-team all-Big 12 selection. He was a unanimous first-team all-Big 12 pick by the league's coaches last year.
Junior defensive tackle Daniel Wise was picked to the second team, while sophomore offensive lineman Hakeem Adeniji and junior receiver Steven Sims Jr. were chosen for the third team. Redshirt junior linebacker Joe Dineen Jr. and sophomore safety Mike Lee were tabbed for the fourth team.
Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas led the conference with 15 all-Big 12 recipients apiece.
