LSU safety is in elite company.

With the news that LSU safety Grant Delpit was selected to the 2018 AFCA All-American team (along with Devin White and Greedy Williams, with Cole Tracy on the second team), the sophomore has become LSU’s first unanimous All-American selection since Morris Claiborne in 2011.

Delpit is now one of just eight players in program history to be a unanimous All-American pick, joining Claiborne, Patrick Peterson, Glenn Dorsey, Nacho Albergamo, Jerry Stoval, Moonie Winston, Billy Cannon and Gaynell Tinsley.

Delpit, Williams and White together make 35 total consensus All-Americans for LSU, with the three making a first team from most of the five major selectors (the Associated Press, Walter Camp Foundation, AFCA, Football Writers Association and the Sporting News).

Delpit finished the 2018 regular season with 73 tackles, including 9.5 for losses and 5.0 sacks, along with an SEC-leading five interceptions.
