Hargreaves a first-team All-american

Florida junior CB Vernon Hargreaves was named an Associated Press first-team All-American, it was announced Sunday. It's another in a long list of honors garnered by the former Wharton High standout, who last week was named first-team All-SEC and first-team Walter Camp All-American. Hargreaves, who was second team last year, announced after the SEC championship game that he is leaving UF early to enter the NFL draft. Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry of Alabama and finalists Deshaun Watson of Clemson and Christian McCaffrey of Stanford also made the first team. LSU's Leonard Fournette joined Henry as first-team running backs. Florida State RB Dalvin Cook and CB Jalen Ramsey were named to the second team, and Florida DT Jon Bullard made the third team. Oklahoma senior linebacker and Armwood High alumnus Eric Striker made the second team. (Full list of All-America teams in For the Record, this page).
