The Associated Press released their All-SEC honors today and three Wildcats made the list.

Senior center Jon Toth was named to the first team, while safety Mike Edwards and linebacker Jordan Jones were named to the second team. Toth and Jones were both named to the Coaches’ All-SEC Second Team on Tuesday.

Toth has been the anchor of Kentucky’s dominant offensive line this season, starting at center in Kentucky’s last 47 games. The Wildcat offensive line paved the way for Kentucky’s running backs to rush for 1,855 yards this season (241.2 yards per game).

Jones and Edwards were among the leading tacklers in the SEC. Jones led the team in tackles with 100 tackles on the season, good for second in the SEC. Edwards was second on the team and fourth in the SEC with 93 tackles.
