Michigan's Taylor Lewan falls short of consensus All-America status
ANN ARBOR -- Taylor Lewan is an All-American.
But he is not a consensus All-American.
The star Michigan left tackle was left off the Football Writers Associate of America's All-America team on Friday, leaving him one short of earning consensus status.
A player needs three of five to be considered a consensus All-American.
Lewan was vying to become the 66th player to earn consensus All-America status at Michigan, according to the school's records. Center David Molk was the most recent player to earn that distinction, doing so last season.
Lewan has one season of eligibility remaining to pursue the honor, although he has said he'll consider entering next spring's NFL Draft. He'll make that decision after Michigan concludes its season Jan. 1 against South Carolina in the Outback Bowl.
