Pickett, Addison help No. 17 Pitt lead ACC’s all-league team
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Quarterback Kenny Pickett and receiver Jordan Addison were among 12 players from No. 17 Pittsburgh to headline the Atlantic Coast Conference’s all-league team.
Pickett and Addison were first-team picks for the offense in Tuesday’s release, while tackle Calijah Kancey was a first-team pick on defense. The Panthers will play in Saturday’s league championship game against No. 18 Wake Forest, which had first-team receiver A.T. Perry and first-team offensive tackle Zach Tom among its eight selections.
Clemson finished with 10 all-ACC picks despite seeing its six-year reign atop the league end.
Florida State senior defensive end Jermaine Johnson II, who ranks sixth nationally with 12 sacks, was the leading vote-getter with 189 points in voting by a panel of 50 media members and each of the league’s head coaches.
The Associated Press will release its all-ACC honors Monday.
