GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Clemson quarterback Cullen Harper is the Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason player of the year.
Harper set 21 school records in earning second-team all-ACC honors last season. He received 34 of 64 votes in a poll of media members on the league's top player.
He finished ahead of two teammates - James Davis received 16 votes and fellow running back C.J. Spiller had four. No other player in the league had more than two votes.
Clemson was the media's pick to win the league championship.
The Tigers were joined by two fellow Atlantic Division teams - Florida State and Wake Forest - with four players on the all-ACC team.
Every school was represented on the all-league team except Duke, Miami and North Carolina State.
