Three more Buckeye All-American honors have been dished out on Thursday, including the first of the year for one player.

Wyatt Davis, Shaun Wade and Jonathon Cooper have each been named All-Americans by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA).

For Davis, it's his fourth honor of the year. With only the Walter Camp Football Foundation yet to reveal its list, Davis is in contention to receive unanimous All-American honors.

Shaun Wade is now a consensus All-American, after he earns his third bit of recognition this fall. To earn that distinction, you need three of the five major All-American lists to recognize your play. Those five outlets are the AFCA, Associated Press (AP), the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), Sporting News, and the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF).
