Virginia Tech linebacker Jack Tyler and Virginia offensive tackle Morgan Moses were named Wednesday to the preseason All-ACC football team.
Voting was conducted Monday by the media members who attended the ACC’s preseason football gathering in Greensboro, N.C.
Tyler was one of three linebackers named to the preseason team; he was the top vote-getter at his position with 42 votes.
Tyler recorded 119 tackles as a junior last year. At the end of last season, Tyler made the media’s All-ACC second team and the coaches All-ACC first team.
Moses, a senior, has started 31 games for UVa. He has made the preseason watch lists for the Lombardi Award and the Outland Trophy.
Florida State led all schools with six players on the preseason team. North Carolina was represented by four players.
Clemson’s Tajh Boyd was chosen as the quarterback. Fifty-nine of 65 voters picked Boyd. Virginia Tech’s Logan Thomas tied for second with two votes.
Other players of note on the team were Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins, Wake Forest receiver Michael Campanaro, Miami running back Duke Johnson and Florida State running back James Wilder.
Among those falling short of making the team were Virginia Tech defensive end James Gayle, Tech cornerback Antone Exum and Tech safety Kyshoen Jarrett. Each finished third in the voting at his position, but only the top two vote-getters at each of those positions made the team.
