Three Sooners have been named to the Associated Press All-America Teams released Wednesday, including slot receiver Ryan Broyles, defensive end Frank Alexander and left guard Gabe Ikard.

Broyles and Alexander earned Second Team honors, while Ikard made it to the Third Team.

Before tearing his ACL, the Sooners' star flanker amassed 1,157 yards and 10 touchdowns on 83 catches, and he broke the NCAA all-time receptions record.

On the other side of the ball, Alexander has been a beast, racking up 8.5 sacks, 18 tackles for loss and 51 total tackles.

In addition to that, he's forced three fumbles, recovered one, picked off a pass, recorded six PBUs and seven quarterback hurries.

Ikard anchored the Sooner offense without starting center Ben Habern for several weeks and remained a mainstay on one of the best offensive lines in the country.
