Austin Seferian-Jenkins voted AP Third-Team All-American

Otto Greule Jr

Seferian-Jenkins led the Huskies in receiving yardage, and also tied for the team lead with six touchdown catches.

Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was one of the best players at his position this past season. The sophomore hauled in 63 receptions for 791 yards and six touchdowns, which helped lead UW to a 7-5 record and a Las Vegas Bowl bid.

Last week, Seferian-Jenkins placed third in John Mackey Award voting, which goes to the nation's top tight end. This week, he was named to the AP Third-Team All-American squad. Stanford star Zach Ertz was named a First-Team All-American, while Notre Dame's Tyler Eifert made the Second Team.

As this article from The News Tribune mentions, Seferian-Jenkins will likely begin next season as college football's best tight end. Both Ertz and Eifert are set to graduate, and assuming Seferian-Jenkins can avoid an offseason injury, he projects to get even better in the coming years. Could the Huskies have a Mackey Award winner on their roster next year? Seferian-Jenkins certainly has the size and skill to make it happen.
