FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas placed five players on the All-SEC team released today including wide receiver Treylon Burks on the first unit.

In addition, Arkansas was picked sixth in the SEC West ahead of only Mississippi State. Linebacker Grant Morgan, safety Jalen Catalon and center Ricky Stromberg were on the second unit while offensive tackle Myron Cunningham was selected for the third team.

Burks has gained a lot of attention this preseason including spots on a couple of watch lists. He led the Razorbacks in catches last season, catching 51 passes for 820 yards and seven touchdowns. He finished third in the SEC in receiving yards per game (91.1) and fifth in total receiving yards, logging six games of 90+ receiving yards and four games of 100+ receiving yards as a true sophomore.

Amazing as it seems, the SEC reporters voted all three Alabama linebackers first-team All-SEC despite Morgan being a returning All-America pick. Morgan was named a Walter Camp and AFCA Second Team All-American at the year’s end, posted a team-best 111 total tackles, including 7.5 for loss, with two sacks last fall.

Stromberg was named to the Rimington Watch List today as the nation’s best center. Cunningham started all 10 games for the Hogs in 2020.

Catalon was named to the All-SEC First Team by the AP and named a Freshman All-American by the FWAA last season after finishing with 99 total tackles, two tackles for loss, three interceptions, four pass break-ups, one fumble recovery and two forced fumbles as a redshirt freshman.
