Three Gators were named to the AP All-SEC First Team, and Florida placed one on the second team when the list was released Monday.

Strong safety Ahmad Black, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and punter Chas Henry were named to the first team.

Last year as a junior, Black was an honorable mention pick by the AP. He was Florida’s best defensive player this season, leading the team with 102 tackles while also recording three interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He was also chosen as a first-team All-SEC pick by Phil Steele.

Jenkins, a projected first-round draft pick he should he choose to leave school early, has covered some of the best receivers in the SEC. He held Alabama’s Julio Jones, Georgia’s A.J. Green and South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery – all first- or second-team selections by the AP – to a combined 114 yards.

Henry, a finalist for the Ray Guy Award, leads the nation in punting with a 46.41 average. He earned first-team honors a year after he was a second-team pick by the AP and third-team selection by Phil Steele.

Center Mike Pouncey was named to the second team. Last year, he was named first-team All-SEC by the AP and Phil Steele while playing at guard. He was on Phil Steele’s fourth team this year.

Here’s a look at the entire AP list. U indicates a unanimous selection.
