DURHAM, N.C. – Duke redshirt senior defensive tackle Vince Oghobaase has been named third team All-America by Sporting News, announced on Tuesday by the national publication.

A 6-5, 305-pound native of Houston, Texas, Oghobaase is Duke’s first defensive lineman to receive All-America honors in the modern era. In addition, he becomes the 59th player in Blue Devil football history to earn All-America accolades.

While helping Duke to its highest win total since 1994, Oghobaase started eight games this year and recorded 37 tackles, 7.5 tackle for loss and 2.5 quarterback sacks despite missing four contests due to injury. A two-time honorable mention All-ACC pick in 2008 and 2009, Oghobaase played in and started 44 games and finished his Duke career with 165 tackles, 36.5 tackles for loss and 14.0 sacks. On Duke's career charts, he ranks fifth in sacks and sixth in tackles for loss.

Oghobaase was one of seven ACC players honored by Sporting News including Clemson’s C.J. Spiller (KR/1st team), Georgia Tech’s Derrick Morgan (DE/2nd team), Clemson’s Thomas Austin (OL/3rd team), DeAndre McDaniel (S/3rd team), Virginia Tech’s Ryan Williams (RB/3rd team) and Florida State’s Greg Reid (PR/3rd team).
