Six Alabama players were named to the AP’s midseason All-America team on Tuesday, the most of any school in the nation.

Sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, junior left tackle Jonah Williams, center Ross Pierschbacher and sophomore wide receiver Jerry Jeudy were all first team picks on offense. Safety Deionte Thompson was a first team choice on defense. Defensive lineman Quinnen Williams was selected to the second team.

Tagovailoa has competed 88 of 123 passes for 1,760 yards with 21 touchdowns and no interceptions, also rushing for two touchdowns. Jeudy has been his top target, catching 26 passes for 705 yards and nine touchdowns. Williams and Pierschbacher have been key blockers for the offense, which leads the nation in scoring.

Thompson leads the team with 40 tackles and has two interceptions, five pass breakups, a fumble forced and a fumble recovery. Williams has 29 tackles to lead Alabama’s defensive lineman along with 1.5 sacks and eight quarterback hurries.

LSU had four players chosen across the two teams, including three first-team players on defense.
