Arizona Wildcats running back Ka'Deem Carey received accolades this weekend when he was named to the CBS Sports first-team All-America team. Carey flourished in Rich Rodriguez's offense, and the Wildcats became one of the most prolific rushing attacks in the country thanks to his production.

Carey had an impressive sophomore campaign, leading the nation with 1,757 rushing yards through 12 games, averaging 6.4 yards per carry and piling up 20 touchdowns. Carey helped lead Arizona to big wins over Oklahoma State, Washington and USC.

In regards to his competition, UCLA's Johnathan Franklin joined Carey on the first team. Montee Ball of the Wisconsin Badgers and Kenjon Barner of the Oregon Ducks finished on the second team. Carey is one of only a handful of sophomores who made the All-America squad. Other sophomores include USC Trojans receiver Marqise Lee, South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and Notre Dame defensive tackle Stephon Tuitt.
