Four Big 12 players were named to the Football Writers Association of America's Freshman All-American team.
B.J. Finney, OL, Kansas State
Tyler Lockett, KR, Kansas State
Quandre Diggs, CB, Texas
Michael Hunnicutt, K, Oklahoma
All worthy selections, and names you'd better get ot know.
Lockett and Diggs will be big-time stars in this league for the rest of their careers. Both already proved their worth as game-changers in their first season on campus.
Hunnicutt quietly had a solid season (21-of-24 on field goals) at a position of big scrutiny for the Sooners.
Finney was a big part of one of the Big 12's best offensive lines.
And for the curious, West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen won the freshman Coach of the Year award as a first-time head man.
