After putting together all-America-type senior seasons, Washington’s Danny Shelton and Hau’oli Kikaha will get consideration as the Pac-12 Conference’s defensive player of the year.

They’re also among the Pac-12’s best in the classroom.

Shelton has been selected to the Pac-12 all-academic first team for the third year in a row, and Kikaha has joined him on the all-academic team for the second year in a row.

UW sophomore offensive lineman Jake Eldrenkamp was a first-team selection on the all-academic first team.

Shelton has a 3.54 grade-point average in anthropology and has also been teaching a freshmen-orientation class this quarter at UW. Kikaha has a 3.51 GPA in American ethnic studies, and Eldrenkamp has a 3.65 GPA in business administration.

UW’s Siosifa Tufunga and Trevor Walker were named to the Pac-12 all-academic second team, and Jeff Lindquist and John Timu were honorable-mention selections.

To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and appear in at least 50 percent of their team’s games.
