Recognition for Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton's breakout junior season continued on Monday when he was named to the 2012 CBSSports.com All-America Team, according to thesundevils.com. This is the second All-America squad to include Sutton thus far, as he was already an AFCA FBS coaches' selection.

Sutton was a terror for opposing offensive lines all season. He recorded 10.5 sacks and tied for third in the country with 20 tackles for loss. With the help of Sutton's pressure along the defensive line, the Sun Devils defense was ranked 11th nationally in passer rating allowed, 12th in passing yards per game, fourth in interceptions, and second in sacks.

In addition to his All-America honors, Sutton was also awarded the Pat Tillman Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. As a team, ASU was able to improve on their 2011 win total by going 7-5 and earning a trip to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl to face Navy.
