Both ESPN and CBS Sports named a trio of Alabama athletes to their preseason All-America teams.
Receiver Amari Cooper, safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and linebacker C.J. Mosley all earned first-team selections for both lists. Running back T.J. Yeldon made first-team for CBS, but not for ESPN. Offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandijo made CBS' second team.
Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews, Florida punter Kyle Christy and South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney are other SEC names that appeared on the two first-team lists.
