The postseason accolades continue to pour in for University of South Carolina senior offensive guard A.J. Cann. Tonight, Cann was named to the Walter Camp All-America second-team unit.
Cann, a 6-4, 311-pounder from Bamberg, S.C., has been a four-year starter at guard for the Gamecocks. He has started 50 of the 51 games over the past four seasons, the second-most starts in Carolina history. A two-time captain, Cann helped lead a team that averaged over 33 points and 450 yards per game.
Cann was named to the first-team All-America squad by CBSSportsline.com on Wednesday. Earlier in the week, he garnered first-team All-SEC honors awarded by the league’s 14 coaches, was a first-team All-SEC selection by College Sports Madness, and was a second-team All-SEC performer according to the Associated Press.
Cann and his Gamecock teammates will travel to Shreveport to play Miami in the Duck Commander Independence Bowl on Saturday, December 27.
