Washington senior nose tackle Danny Shelton has been named to the Sporting News preseason All-America team.

He had 10 tackles, including one for loss, at UCLA, and finished the season with a career-high 59 tackles.
He added had two sacks and two blocked kicks in 2013 while playing through a shoulder injury that required surgery in January.
He also earned first-team all-academic honors in the Pac-12 last year.
Shelton is listed by CBSsports.com as the No. 3 tackle available for the 2015 NFL Draft.
