BATON ROUGE - LSU had the most players out of all SEC teams make the preseason Coaches All-SEC first team, and tied Alabama for the most total All-SEC selections with 11.
LSU's first-team All-SEC players include Alex Hurst on offense, Sam Montgomery, Barkevious Mingo, Tyrann Mathieu and Eric Reid on defense and Brad Wing and Mathieu on special teams.
The Tigers had three players listed on the second-team and one on the third-team.
The preseason All-SEC team was voted on by the 14 head coaches in the conference, and coaches were not permitted to vote for players on their own team.
This is the ninth year of the SEC Coaches Preseason All-SEC Team, which is announced before the SEC Football Media Days next Tuesday. LSU is slated to appear Wednesday from 2:30-5 p.m. with head coach Les Miles, junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger, Beckham Jr. and Reid scheduled to attend.
