Phil Steele's preseason All-American team

By staff

Phil Steele has released his preseason All-American teams -- four, no less.

Here's how things stack up for the Pac-12.

First team
Matt Barkley, QB, USC
Robert Woods, WR, USC
Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington State

Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
Shayne Skov, LB, Stanford
T.J. McDonald, S, USC


Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
Khaled Holmes, C, USC

Chase Thomas, OLB, Stanford
John Boyett, S, Oregon

Special teams
KR De'Anthony Thomas, Oregon

John White, RB, Utah
Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon
Keenan Allen, WR, California

Special teams
PR Jamal Miles, Arizona State


Nickell Robey, CB, USC
Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State

Special teams
Jeff Locke, P, UCLA

Did you notice a shocking omission? USC WR Marqise Lee is a likely preseason first- or at least second-team All-American, but he's not on Steele's list. He was second-team All-Pac-12 for Steele, so it was an omission.

You could also wonder about Oregon punter Jackson Rice, a 2011 Ray Guy Award finalist, and Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan.
