Kansas State guard Cooper Beebe, edge rushers Laiatu Latu from UCLA and Jalen Green from James Madison, and Texas defensive tackle T'Vondre Sweat were the other fifth-year players to make the first team.
College players who were in school during the 2020 pandemic season were granted an extra year of eligibility and they are still making their presence felt around the country.
Eleven more fifth-year players made the second and third teams and there were eight sixth-year players selected to those teams, including Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr., the Heisman runner up. Penix and the second-ranked Huskies face No. 3 Texas in the College Football Playoff's Sugar Bowl semifinal on Jan. 1.
Notre Dame offensive tackle Joe Alt and Ohio State receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. were selected first-team All-Americans for the second straight year. Beebe and Georgia tight end Brock Bowers moved up from second team last season to first this year.
The Crimson Tide, seeded fourth in the College Football Playoff, faces No. 1 Michigan in the Rose Bowl semifinal on Jan. 1.
The SEC has the most first-team selections with nine, followed by the Big Ten (6), Pac-12 (4), Big 12 (3), Independents (2) and the ACC, MAC and Sun Belt with one each.
The AP All-America team was selected by a panel of 18 college Top 25 poll voters.
