The Tide is making a splash on the 2013 Sports Illustrated preseason All-American teams. Sophomore running back T.J. Yeldon, junior safety HaHa Clinton-Dix, and senior linebacker C.J, Mosley all earned a spot on the first team.
Sophomore wide receiver Amari Cooper and junior offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio took spots on the second team. The trio and duo combined make up the most a team has represented overall.
Eight SEC players made first team. Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel and South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney are two of the eight selected.
