Boston College's Luke Kuechly Named To AP All-American First Team

Boston College junior linebacker Luke Kuechly's stock continues to rise higher and higher, as the Butkus Award winner was named to the Associated Press All-American First Team on Wednesday afternoon. Kuechly led the nation in total tackles (191) and solo stops (102) and has a school-record 532 career tackles with the Eagles.

Kuechly was named the recipient of several other trophies and honors this offseason, including the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. Kuechly was named a Walter Camp First Team All-American and also received the Lott IMPACT Trophy. Earlier this week, Kuechly was honored with the Bronko Nagurski Award, honoring the nation's top defensive player.

It's unknown whether or not Kuechly will return to Boston College for his senior season. Kuechly is projected to be a top 15 draft pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, with some experts even labeling him as a potential top 10 pick. However, it's well known that Kuechly has enjoyed his time at BC, which could serves as a plus for the Eagles and their fans.
