The three teams have been released.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The SEC officially released their Preseason All-SEC Teams today ahead of the start of the ten game 2020 season. The Tennessee Volunteers had five players named to the teams, led by senior offensive guard Trey Smith.

Smith was named to the SEC’s first team, along with kicker Brent Cimaglia. Tennessee was shut out of the first-team defense, but linebacker Henry To’o To’o landed on the second-team defense. Sophomore tackle Wanya Morris, fresh off of starting nearly every game as a freshman, was named to the second-team defense. Rounding things out was cornerback Bryce Thompson, who was named to the third-team defense.

Alabama led the conference with 11 players. Georgia was next with 10, while Florida, Texas A&M and LSU had eight. The teams were assembled based off of votes from coaches in the conference, who were not able to vote for their own players.

The complete rosters of each of the three teams are below.
