The Michigan Wolverines and Michigan St. Spartans have both seen their football teams receive a lot of attention recently. As the 2012 college football season approaches, more and more players have been added to various watch lists around the Internet, with plenty of expectations for plenty of players, mostly on the defensive side of the ball.
Well, SB Nation is getting in on the fray with their Preseason All-America Team. On Monday, Jason Kirk revealed the first part of their team with a look at the offensive and defensive lines - the cornerstone of any football team. If you've got holes on either, you're going to get your quarterback hurt or your defense exposed.
Michigan State highlights the list with William Gholston making it as a defensive end. Gholston has already been named to several award watch lists, including the Lombardi watch list, Butkus watch list and the Walter Camp watch list.
The Wolverines didn't have anybody make the team, but they did have an honorable mention on the offensive side of the ball. Taylor Lewan is named as an honorable mention. Lewan is also on the Lombardi watch list, and also is on the watch list for the Outland Trophy.
