USC continues to be rewarded for its turnaround this season. Today it was announced that cornerback Adoree Jackson and offensive tackle Zach Banner were named First Team All American.
Jackson and Banner are USC’s first All-Americans since 2014 when Nelson Agholor and Leonard Williams.
Adoree’ Jackson led the Trojans in Interceptions (4) and pass break ups (11) during his junior season. Not to mention that Adoree’ Jackson had a huge impact on special teams with 4 touchdowns off of punt and kick returns combined. While he didn’t get the invite to New York City for the Heisman ceremony, Jackson was also a finalist for the Paul Hournung award and the Thorpe Award.
Zach Banner on the other hand is the leader on the offensive line and provided a positive voice for the Trojans. The Senior is USC’s first tackle to be named All-American since Matt Kahlil had the honors in 2011.
