Utes DE Bradlee Anae Named ESPN All-American
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Utes star defensive end Bradlee Anae was named an All-American by ESPN.
ESPN listed just one All-American team and listed Anae as one of the two top defensive ends in the nation, joining Ohio State DE and Heisman Trophy Finalist Chase Young.
Anae keeps racking up the awards. He was named first team All-Pac-12 for the second consecutive season and last week was named a Walter Camp All-American.
He is one of three players from the Pac-12 to be named an ESPN All-American, joining former Desert Hills star and current Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell and California linebacker Evan Weaver.
