Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was named a CBS Sports third-team All-American earlier this week.

Stanford tight end Zach Ertz made the first-team cut and Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert made the second team. Seferian-Jenkins was the only Husky to be named to any of the three teams.

The sophomore from Fox Island, Wash., is one of the best tight ends to roll through the Washington system. He set school records in career receptions by a tight end (104), receiving yards (1,327) and touchdown receptions (12).

He finished the regular season as the NCAA's leader in receptions among tight ends at 5.25 per game. He totaled 63 receptions for 789 yards and six touchdowns on the 2012 season.

Along with Ertz and Eifert, Seferian-Jenkins was a finalist for the 2012 Mackey Award, which is given to the top tight end in the college. The winner will be announced on Wednesday at 7:05 a.m. PT here.
