All-ACC Preason Team 2013

Filed under: ACC,Conference,Football,Players — Chas @ 10:43 am

The ACC announced its all-ACC Preseason team. Only Safety Jason Hendricks made the team from Pitt. Florida State led the conference with six players.

The ACC doesn’t have multiple all-ACC squads. Instead they list the top-4 vote getters for each position — along with their total number of votes. Defensive Tackle Aaron Donald just missed making the All-ACC. Only one other Pitt player made the top-4, and it was not WR Devin Street. Punter Matt Yoklic finished third.

It’s not terribly surprising that Pitt didn’t place many players. Aside from the obvious questions of talent, the ACC media as a whole is not exactly familiar with Pitt (or Syracuse which didn’t place a player).

even more incentive for Donald and Street to do well

Hendrick got in with 18 votes.
yet, Donald didn’t get in with 32 votes.
Actually, I’m surprised Hendrick made the cut.

Jason Hendricks is well-deserving of the recognition.

Right now, Hendricks looks to be Pitt’s best NFL-bound player. Has ideal size and speed for his position… and due to his ball-hawking ability, would expect him to go high… somewhere between the second and fourth rounds.

All this probably played into Hendricks getting the nod from the ACC press which has yet to its first does of Pitt Football.

But frr those of us well familiar with this particular Pitt football team… it is pretty obvious that, when he is on his game… Aaron Donald is Pitt’s best player.

Head low, Under the radar, work hard to “earn it” – HCPC formula –
Now we just need to create the “attention” on the field.

Donald got more votes than Hendrick.
Perhaps not as many top notch safeties in ACC.

CompLit… how are things going with the efforts for a feasibility study for a new Oakland Stadium?

Jason Hendricks- Offers from Pitt, Syracuse, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, and James Madison.

Is he a Chryst recruit?

Pittofdreams – Weren’t some of those guys considered ‘elite’ recruits??

Did they commit in spite of Coach Chryst?

Comment by pghFred 07.24.13 @ 1:03 pm

Pittofdreams, you left off Johnson, Holtz, Thomas and Pitts

Comment by wbb 07.24.13 @ 1:06 pm

Hendricks is deserving as is donald but the acc is known for somewhat porous defenses and elite skill players. In another conference streets there too

I know for a fact that orndoff chose pitt because of chryst and rudolph. I cant say about the others.

Comment by Pk 07.24.13 @ 1:15 pm

1 pitt guy on the pre-season all ACC, so what. I think we’ll have 3 or 4 players on the Post Season all ACC.

Did they make a pre-season Coach of the Year pick ?
