UCLA junior outside linebacker Akeem Ayers has been named to the second unit of the 121st edition of the Walter Camp Football Foundation All-America team, it was announced this evening. The team is selected by vote of FBS head coaches and Sports Information Directors.

Ayers, one of the most versatile defenders in the nation, ranked fourth on the squad with 68 tackles, first with two fumble recoveries, tied for the team lead with 4.0 sacks and ranked second with 10.0 tackles for loss, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Ayers was one of just five Pac-10 players to make the first or second teams. Oregon running back LaMichael James was named to the first team while Stanford's quarterback-center combination of Andrew Luck and Chase Beeler and Oregon's Cliff Harris, selected as both a defensive back and kick returner, joined Ayers on the second team.
