2012 has been an incredible year for sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee, who, in addition to being the Trojans’ first Biletnikoff Award winner ever, is officially a unanimous All-American.
On Friday, the Football Writer’s Association of America named Marqise Lee to their All-American first team, which gives him this highly regarded status. Lee is USC’s first unanimous All-American since LB Rey Maualuga received the designation in 2008, and the 27th in Trojan history.
To be a unanimous All-American, an athlete must be named to all five–AP, American Football Coaches Association, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News, and the Walter Camp Football Foundation–organizations recognized by the NCAA.
Lee will return to USC as a junior in 2013 and will continue to write his incredible legacy. Having etched his name in stone by way of setting Pac-12 and USC records this year alone, Lee has already made a strong case for himself as one of the best wide receivers in Trojan history.
