USF football saw three of its players earn all-conference accolades on Wednesday when the All-AAC team was announced. The All-AAC team is voted on by the conference’s head coaches.

Tight end Mitchell Wilcox was named to the All-AAC first team, linebacker Khalid McGee was named to the second team and cornerback Mike Hampton was an honorable mention.

Wilcox has caught 40 passes this season for 506 yards and  set a USF program record for receptions by tight ends in a game against Illinois on Sept. 15 with eight receptions. Wilcox, a junior, is just six receptions away from tying Sean Price (75) for the program record for career receptions by a tight end.

McGee was named to the All-AAC second team after transitioning from safety to linebacker this season. McGee recorded 104 tackles this season, which is the 15th 100-tackle season in program history. He sits second in the conference with 9.5 tackles per game and has posted double-digit tackles in five games.

In his first season as a starter, Hampton ranks ninth nationally in passes defended. Hampton, a sophmore, recorded 41 tackles and two interceptions in 10 games started this season.

Wilcox, McGee and Hampton will look to build on their season when USF learns about its upcoming bowl game sometime this weekend.
