Wilson, Terry Named Phil Steele All-Americans

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Senior defensive tackle Marvin Wilson earned consensus preseason All-America honors when he was named to the Phil Steele first team. Wilson was previously named a first-team Preseason All-American by Walter Camp and Sporting News, three of the five publications the NCAA recognizes for consensus All-America status.

Redshirt junior wide receiver Tamorrion Terry is a third-team All-American from Phil Steele.

Wilson, from Houston, has also been named to the watch lists for the Bednarik Award and Nagurski Trophy, given to the nation’s top defensive player, and the Outland Trophy, presented to the country’s best interior lineman. He is also part of the Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List.

He was an All-American and first-team All-ACC performer last season despite a season-ending injury in the ninth game of the year. In those nine games, Wilson recorded 44 tackles, including 8.5 for loss with a team-high 5.0 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, four pass breakups and two quarterback hurries. He was one of only four defensive tackles in the nation, and the only one from the ACC, with multiple 3.0 tackle-for-loss games in 2019.

In his career, Wilson has started 14 of his 33 games played and compiled 93 tackles, 13.5 for loss with 8.5 sacks, seven quarterback hurries, six pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. His sacks and tackles for loss totals are tops among current Seminoles.

Terry, from Ashburn, Georgia, is on the Biletnikoff Watch List for the best receiver. Terry enters 2020 with 95 career receptions for 1,932 yards and 17 touchdowns, ranking 15th in FSU history in both yards and touchdowns. He holds the FSU record with five career receiving touchdowns of at least 70 yards, including a career-high 91-yard score against Arizona State in the 2019 Sun Bowl.

Nationally, Terry’s 49.06 yards per touchdown reception is the second-highest among players with at least 15 touchdowns over the past decade.

In 2019, Terry led FSU with 60 catches for 1,188 yards and nine touchdowns while earning second-team All-ACC honors. He posted the 13th 1,000-yard receiving season in program history, ranking seventh in single-season receiving yards. He led the country with 57.89 yards per touchdown catch, the highest average in the last 15 years among players with at least nine touchdowns.
