There are still 73 more days until Week 0 of the college football season, but the preseason awards lists are starting to come out. Wednesday, Phil Steele listed his 2022 preseason All-Americans — and the offense is a star-studded list.

Alabama quarterback Bryce Young leads Steele’s first team All-American list, which shouldn’t be much of a surprise considering he’s the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. Ohio State wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba and USC wide receiver Jordan Addison also cracked the list, as did Texas running back Bijan Robinson. Brock Bowers, who burst onto the scene as a freshman last year for Georgia en route to a national title, is also part of the group.

Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud, who finished fourth in the Heisman voting last year, leads the second team while Caleb Williams — the top player to hit the transfer portal this offseason, according to the On3 Transfer Portal Rankings — headlines Steele’s third team All-Americans.

Here are Steele’s full offensive preseason All-Americans.
