Duke wideout Conner Vernon has been selected to the Freshman All-America team by The Sporting News.

Vernon, who established Duke single-season records for pass receptions (55), receiving yards (746) and 100-yard receiving games (3) by a freshman, also finished with 1,041 all-purpose yards.

Vernon is one of five ACC players on that Sporting News team, joined by Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams, Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly, Clemson safety Rashard Hall and Florida State punt returner Greg Reid.

He is also one of seven Triangle-area players on the magazine's freshman All-ACC squad. Joining Vernon were Duke teammates Brian Moore as an offensive lineman and Desmond Scott as a kick returner; UNC's wideout Erik Highsmith, offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper and linebacker Kevin Reddick; and N.C. State defensive back Brandan Bishop.

Virginia Tech's Williams was named ACC freshman of the year.
