NEW HAVEN, Conn. - University of Oregon junior cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu was one of 25 players named to the 124th edition of the Walter Camp Football Foundation second-team All-America squad.

The Riverside, Calif., native's inclusion marks the fourth straight year an Oregon player has been chosen for the nation’s oldest and most prestigious All-America team, which is selected by the head coaches and sports information directors of the 125 Football Bowl Subdivision schools.

An all-conference first-team choice by the Pac-12 coaches the past two seasons, Ekpre-Olomu ranks second on the Ducks in tackles (78) and interceptions (3) heading into UO's Alamo Bowl appearance against Texas on Dec. 30 in San Antonio. He was previously named second-team All-America by USA Today.

Ekpre-Olomu follows return specialist Cliff Harris (2010), and running backs LaMichael James (2010, '11) and Kenjon Barner (2012), as Oregon's most recent Walter Camp All-America recipients.
