Jay Ajayi Earns Associated Press, Sports Illustrated All-America Honors
Boise State redshirt junior running back Jay Ajayi earned a pair of All-America nods Tuesday, being named to the Associated Press' Third Team and picking up honorable mention from Sports Illustrated.
Ajayi has now thrice been recognized as an All-American this season, as he was named to USA Today Sports’ second team last week. Late last week he was also named a finalist for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award. Ajayi is also the first Boise State running back to earn All-American honors since Ian Johnson in 2006.
Tuesday’s announcement also marks the fourth All-America honor earned by a Bronco this season, as Darian Thompson was named to the CBSSports.com All-American Second Team last week.
