Jekiri All ACC Defense, Rodriguez & McClellan Honorable Mention

UM's stars earn modest accolades

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday I gave SOTU's ALL- ACC Selections.

The media as a whole was far less bullish on the 'Canes.

I had Tonye Jekiri and Sheldon McClellan as ALL-ACC second team players, and  Jekiri as my DPOY.

In reality none of that came to fruition.

In such a deep conference, it is hard to argue with the awards/honors below.

But I do feel Jekiri is underrated.  Watching UM play this year, one could argue that with out Jekiri they would be in the lower third of the league.

Here's hoping Miami makes a run and get some more respect on the All-ACC Tournament teams.

Here are the full ALL-ACC Teams:
