Khaseem Greene named AP All-American

By Matt Fortuna

Khaseem Greene picked up his second All-America honor in as many days Tuesday, as the Rutgers linebacker was named a third-team Associated Press All-American.

Greene is the first Scarlet Knights player to become an AP All-American since wide receiver Kenny Britt attained the honor in 2008, and Greene is the first Rutgers linebacker ever to make the team.

Greene was named an first-team All-American on Monday, and he has also earned All-America status earlier from the Walter Camp Foundation (first team) and (third team), in addition to being named the Big East's defensive player of the year for the second year in a row.

No other Big East player earned AP All-America honors.

The Big East had two players on last year's AP All-American team: Cincinnati defensive tackle Derek Wolfe (second team) and West Virginia all-purpose threat Tavon Austin (third team).
