Big Ten puts 12 on AP All-America team

The 2010 Associated Press All-America teams have been revealed, and 12 players from the Big Ten made the cut. It's a very solid group overall.

FIRST TEAM

  • Wisconsin LT Gabe Carimi

  • Wisconsin G John Moffitt

  • Purdue DE Ryan Kerrigan

  • Michigan State LB Greg Jones

SECOND TEAM

THIRD TEAM

The AP voters definitely were taught how to Bucky this year, as five Wisconsin players made the cut.

Michigan State's Jones is the only player to make the AP's first team for the second consecutive season, a testament to his incredible career in East Lansing. While I still have issues with Robinson not being classified as a quarterback, it's nice to see him recognized this way.

It was good to see the AP recognize Leshoure's contributions for Illinois. He's the Big Ten's top running back this season.

Also, five Nebraska players made the All-America teams, including three juniors: cornerback Prince Amukamara, defensive tackle Jared Crick and linebacker Lavonte David.
