App State’s Jolly Adds More Preseason Accolades


BOONE, N.C. — Accolades continue to roll in for junior cornerback Shaun Jolly, who has been named a second-team preseason All-American by USA TODAY Sports and CBS Sports.

In the last week, he’s also been recognized as a top-40 player in college football by the PFF College site, which named him a preseason third-team All-American.

Of the 44 offensive and defensive players on the first and second teams, Jolly is one of just two players from a Group of Five program on the CBS Sports list and one of just four G5 players on the USA TODAY Sports list.

PFF College lists him at No. 39 overall among all FBS players, thanks in part to the fact the 91.7 grade he received in 2019 tied for first place nationally among FBS cornerbacks.


Jolly previously has been named a preseason All-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation (first team), Street and Smith (second team), Sporting News (second team) and Phil Steele (fourth team). He intercepted five passes in 2019, tied for the FBS lead with two pick-six touchdowns and added eight PBUs, 45 tackles and 3.5 tackles for loss.
