Senior defensive back Daymeion Hughes picked up another preseason honor after being selected to the Blue Ribbon College Football Yearbook All-America defense.
Hughes, a native of Los Angeles, was earlier named a second-team All-America defensive back by The Sporting News and Lindy's Football annual and was recognized as a first-team All-American by Playboy Magazine.
The 6-2, 188-pound cornerback is on the preseason watch lists for both the 2006 Bronco Nagurski Trophy and the 2006 Check Bednarik Award. Hughes was a 2005 first-team all-league pick after recording 17 passes defended, including five interceptions.
