Payton Wilson from NC State has been chosen as the top player in the All-ACC first-team selection announced by

According to Brian Murphy, a meteorologist from WRAL,

According to an announcement made by the league on Tuesday evening, Payton Wilson, linebacker for NC State, received the most votes for first-team All-ACC honors.

Wilson has been named a contender for prestigious national honors awarded to the most outstanding linebacker and defensive player in collegiate football. This marks Wilson’s fifth year, during which he recorded an impressive 138 tackles (69 of which were solo) and six sacks, topping the ACC rankings. Additionally, he made three interceptions for his team, the Wolfpack.

Earlier in the season, NC State coach Dave Doeren stated that he is currently the top defensive player in college football.

Wilson was awarded 184 points by the voting panel, just short of the maximum of 192 points. The panel consisted of 51 media members and 14 head coaches from the league. Players were given three points for a first-team vote, two points for a second-team vote, and one point for a third-team vote. Coaches were not allowed to vote for players on their own team.

Malik Washington, a wide receiver for Virginia, was awarded 182 points for his outstanding performance in receiving, leading the nation with an average of 9.2 receptions per game. Omarion Hampton, a first-team selection and running back for North Carolina, received 178 points.

Wilson was NC State’s lone first-team selection. Freshman wide receiver Kevin “KC” Concepcion made the second team.

Along with Hampton, who topped the ACC with 1,442 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground, UNC’s Bryson Nesbit and Cedric Gray earned spots on the first team as tight end and linebacker, respectively.

The first team included Duke’s guard Graham Barton, defensive tackle DeWayne Carter, and punter Porter Wilson.

Drake Maye, the quarterback for North Carolina and the preseason player of the year, was placed as the second-string quarterback. Other North Carolina players, Kaimon Rucker (defensive end) and Noah Burnette (kicker), also made the team.

Jordan Moore, a wide receiver for Duke, along with guard Jacob Monk and linebacker Tre Freeman, were chosen for the second team.

Anthony Belton and Ayden White, both from NC State, were chosen for the third team as an offensive tackle and cornerback respectively. Tez Walker from UNC, along with Willie Lampkin and Power Echols, were third-team picks as a wide receiver, guard, and linebacker. Jordan Waters from Duke and Aeneas Peebles as a running back and defensive tackle were also selected for the third team. Peebles recently announced his decision to enter the transfer portal.

Florida State, who remains unbeaten, will face Louisville in the conference championship game this Saturday. They have the most players, a total of eight, selected for the first team. Additionally, 17 Seminoles were chosen for one of the three All-ACC teams. Miami came in second with nine overall selections.

On Sunday, NC State (9-3), UNC (8-4), and Duke (7-5) will find out their bowl games and opponents since they all meet the eligibility requirements.
