Nick Bosa named first team all-american.

If you needed another indication that Nick Bosa was extremely good at football, he collected more recognition on Wednesday afternoon as CBS Sports named him a preseason All-American.

Bosa was one of just three unanimous first-team selections this year, joining Stanford's Bryce Love and Houston's Ed Oliver.

Entering his junior season, Bosa has already been projected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 Draft, and for good reason. Pro Football Talk identified him as the best pass rusher in the country, by quite a large margin.

Last season, Bosa had 8.5 sacks and 16 tackles for a loss in somewhat limited action as he was splitting time with three other players now in the NFL. But with the departure of Tyquan Lewis, Sam Hubbard and Jalyn Holmes, he'll see more snaps this season.

In total, the Big Ten had 10 players across both the first and second team, but Bosa was the only Buckeye to make the list with names like J.K. Dobbins and Dre'Mont Jones left off.
