University of South Carolina sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was a unanimous selection to the Associated Press first-team All-SEC squad, it was announced Monday.

Clowney, a 6-6, 256-pounder from Rock Hill, S.C., is second in the nation in both sacks (13.0) and tackles for loss (21.5), both single season school records. He is a finalist for the Nagurski, Lombardi, Bednarik and Hendricks awards.

Carolina junior all-purpose back Ace Sanders and senior safety D.J. Swearinger earned spots on the AP's second team, while junior running back Marcus Lattimore earned honorable mention, despite having his season end prematurely following a knee injury.
