FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas senior linebacker Grant Morgan, redshirt freshman safety Jalen Catalon, sophomore wide receiver Treylon Burks and senior defensive lineman Jonathan Marshall have been named Associated Press All-SEC.

Morgan and Catalon were tabbed to the first team, while Burks and Marshall earned second team recognition.

Morgan is one of only two Razorback defenders in the last 10 seasons to garner AP and coaches All-SEC first team honors, joining Martrell Spaight in 2014. He is tied for the nation’s lead, averaging 12.3 tackles per game while ranking second in the FBS and tops in the SEC with 111 total tackles.

Catalon becomes just the second freshman in school history – and the first defender – to be named All-SEC first team; the first since running back Darren McFadden in 2005 (AP and Coaches). He is the only FBS player to make 95-plus tackles with three interceptions this season.

Burks is the first Arkansas wide receiver to earn All-SEC recognition by both the AP and coaches since Cobi Hamilton in 2012. He is ranked fourth in the SEC and 18th nationally with 820 receiving yards, placed sixth in the league with 5.7 receptions per game and seventh with seven touchdowns.

Marshall is Arkansas’ first All-SEC defensive lineman since Darius Philon in 2014. The redshirt senior was the only Arkansas defender to start all 10 regular season games, totaling 35 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 1.0 sack, one forced fumble and four quarterback hurries.
