Tennessee linebacker AJ Johnson was the only player from Tennessee or Vanderbilt voted preseason All-SEC by the leagues’ coaches Thursday.
Johnson turned down an opportunity to return for his senior season. He is trying to earn his first trip to a bowl game and improve his draft status at the same time.
Vols receiver Marquez North was a third team selection. Vanderbilt punter Taylor Hudson is also a third teamer.
Former Giles County star Bo Wallace is a second team pick at quarterback. Wallace is entering his senior season at Mississippi.
