NEW YORK – University of Oregon running back LaMichael James was named to the Associated Press All-America team Tuesday, his fourth such honor since the end of the regular season.

The NCAA’s leading rusher with 1,682 yards and 22 total touchdowns, James was previously named All-America by the American Football Coaches Association, the Walter Camp Football Foundation and the Football Writers Association of America. Should Sporting News select the sophomore, he would become Oregon’s first unanimous All-America. Those five teams are all formally recognized by the NCAA for records purposes.

Sophomore Cliff Harris made the AP’s second team at cornerback. No player in college football has more pass breakups than Harris, who recorded 15 during the regular season. He also leads the nation in passes defended with 20 and is tied for 14th with 0.42 interceptions per game.

The Fresno, Calif., product was a first-team choice by the FWAA as a return specialist. He tied the Pac-10 record with four punt returns for touchdowns this season.
