Ryan Shazier, Carlos Hyde and Jack Mewhort Named AP All-Americans

By Kyle Rowland on December 17, 2013 at 1:17p

One day after being named ESPN.com All-Americans, linebacker Ryan Shazier and left tackle Jack Mewhort, along with running back Carlos Hyde, were named to the AP All-American team. Shazier was named a first-teamer, while Mewhort and Hyde appear on the third-team. 

Shazier leads the Big Ten with 134 total tackles on top of 22.5 tackles for loss (six sacks) and four forced fumbles. He ranks third nationally in tackles for loss and solo tackles. 

Mewhort contriubted to Ohio State's record-setting offense, which includes points scored (602), total yards (6,740), passing touchdowns (36) and total touchdowns (82). The Buckeyes need 72 yards rushing in the Orange Bowl to break the school record set in 1974 (4,199 yards). He's also been a catalyst in Hyde's productive season. The bruising tailback rushed for 1,408 yards in just 10 games, good for nearly eight yards per carry.

The only thing I don't enjoy is seeing Lewan on the second team ahead of Mewhort. Pure name recognition rather than rewarding performance on the field.

Maybe if Mewhort had tried to rip a head of an opposing player ,then he would be a first teamer.

No, it wasn't the "head rip" that did it for Lewan, it was the seemingly perpetually bleeding cut on his forehead.

Yeah, he really needs to have someone look at that.

ESPN starting the SEC channel to concentrate on the SEC is like Baskin-Robbins starting a new store to concentrate on selling ice cream.

Especially since I suspect blood isn't the only thing leaking out from his skull.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Congrats to them! Still shake my head at Shazier NOT winning B1G LB of the year.

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Hard to believe any tackle had a better season than Mewhort. Congrats to all three.

Hell yeah Guapo getting some deserved recognition!  He became my favorite Buckeye since AJ Hawk this season.  That suspension sucks he would have at least been #2 in the Heisman voting.
If I had a complaint it would be that he isn't 2nd team.

Anyone notice Clowney not on anyone's lists. Kind of surprised he didn't make third team?

He was such a bitch this year he just plain and simple didn't deserve the recognition.  His brain is 95% in the NFL, as it has been all year.

Everyone is going to see who the better tackle is of Mewhort and Lewan once they get to the pros.  Mewhort has solid 10 year vet written all over him, Lewan is gonna be Richie Incognito 2.0.  Mark it down.

The answer may not be at the bottom of a bottle, but it never hurts to check.

Well-deserved honor, guys!
