Josh Doctson named AP All-American

No real surprise, but the greatest receiver in TCU's history becomes TCU's first 1st team offensive AP All-American since LT in 2000.

Since the USA All-American team was released early last week, I think we all knew Josh Doctson would be on just about every All-American team. Despite suffering a wrist injury against Oklahoma State in early November, Doctson still led the NCAA in receiving yards per game--an absurd 132.2 YPG, which was about 12 yards more than Tulsa's Keyarris Garrett, who was second in the country. Corey Coleman, who won the Biletnikoff--awarded to the Nation's top receiver--was third in the country with 113.6 ypg.

Personally, I would love a recount on the vote, but Josh is a much better man than I am and was one of the first to congratulate Coleman via Twitter on his award. This was TCU's first offensive 1st team AP All-American since LT in 2000.
