Brian O'Neill and Quadree Henderson have both gotten their share of preseason recognition through various award watch lists. They added another honor this week with the news that both made the All-ACC preseason team.
The team was voted on by the media attending the Media Days last week.
As a consensus All-American last year, Henderson was a no-brainer. And by the amount of recognition that O'Neill is racking up while going into the season starting for his third consecutive year, it's no surprise seeing him there as well.
Others, such as Jester Weah, Jordan Whitehead, Ryan Winslow, and Alex Officer all got more than ten votes. Alex Bookser and Avonte Maddox recorded a few votes, and fullback George Aston even got a vote at running back largely on (I'm guessing) the strength of his impressive ten touchdowns last year.
