CBS Sports Names Three Hokies To Preseason All-ACC Team

CBS Sports announced their 2012 Preseason All-ACC team last night, a team that included three Hokies. Defensive end James Gayle, cornerback Kyle Fuller and center Andrew Miller made the cut, while quarterback Logan Thomas, wide receiver Marcus Davis, defensive end J.R. Collins and linebacker Bruce Taylor were all considered (can't we just call it honorable mention? I mean everyone was considered, right?)

Gayle and Fuller were both named to the official 2012 Preseason All-ACC team at the ACC Kickoff (media days), but Miller was a distant second to Clemson center Dalton Freeman in the voting for center. Bruce Taylor was also named to that team, but was only considered for the CBS team. Strangely, Kyle Fuller was included on the team as a safety, a position he's never actually played at Virginia Tech and is unlikely to play at any point this season.

Florida State led the way with eight selections, (double their All-ACC team total by the ACC media) while North Carolina replicated their total of four from the All-ACC team the ACC media selected. Tech finished third with three selections, while Clemson and NC State only garnered two selections on the team. Boston College, Duke, Georgia Tech, Miami, NC State, Virginia and Wake Forest were represented by only one player apiece.

This team was very different than the All-ACC team released by the ACC media. It's top heavy, but at least every team is represented in the poll. The eight players picked will certainly make the folks at Tomahawk Nation happy, but their gripe about James Gayle being picked ahead of Bjoern Werner will continue to go unresolved. BC Interruption will be happy though, at least they landed a player on this team!
