Leonard Williams, Nelson Agholor, Su'a Cravens earn AP recognition

Williams makes second-team AP All America; Agholor and Cravens named to third team

The Associated Press announced its All-America teams on Tuesday, and USC’s Leonard Williams was named to the second team, Nelson Agholor and Su’a Cravens to the third.

Williams, a junior defensive end, was named an ESPN.com first-team All-American last week. He is regarded as a possible top pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Sometime after the Dec. 27 Holiday Bowl against Nebraska, Williams is expected to announce that he will forego his final season of eligibility and make himself available for the draft.

Agholor, also a junior, has 97 receptions, 11 for touchdowns. He also has returned two punts for touchdowns. Agholor is eligible to make himself available for the draft as well.

Cravens, a sophomore, was moved from safety to linebacker early in the season. He is listed as a safety on the AP team.

Cravens has a team-best 16 tackles for losses, including five sacks. He also has intercepted two passes.

The Trojans resume practice Wednesday.
