Oklahoma football could add two more All-Americans to its long list of honorees in 2018.
Athlon Sports released its preseason 2018 All-America teams, which is a projection of what the publication believes will happen at the end of the season.
Oklahoma tackle Bobby Evans earned a third-team nod, while running back Rodney Anderson grabbed a fourth-team spot.
Evans will have the responsibility of anchoring Oklahoma’s 2018 offense line, which won’t have Orlando Brown for the first time since 2015.
Evans should be a candidate for plenty of postseason awards if he can consistently keep either Kyler Murray or Austin Kendall upright.
Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor, Ohio State’s J.K. Dobbins and Stanford’s Bryce Love were ahead of Anderson on Athlon’s list.
Anderson could surpass his peers, however, if he duplicates his late-season success from 2017.
Anderson rushed for 1,161 yards and 17 touchdowns last season. He rushed for 1,079 yards, however, in the last eight games of the season.
He also accumulated 281 receiving yards and 5 touchdown receptions in 2017.
Oklahoma tied for the second-most preseason All-America honorees in the Big 12 with Iowa State. West Virginia had the most with three selections, including first-team honorees Will Grier and David Sills.
