Selections are made by the league’s 10 head coaches, who are not permitted to vote for their own players.

The honorable mention pool was deep this season for the Red Raiders as 15 additional players received a nod from the league’s head coaches for their efforts on the field.

In addition to first-team honors, Wilson received at least one vote for both Defensive Player of the Year and Defensive Lineman of the Year. Trey Wolff received a nod for Special Teams Player of the Year while defensive lineman Joseph Adedire picked up an honorable mention for Defensive Freshman of the Year and quarterback Behren Morton for Offensive Freshman of the Year.

For their respective position, Jerand Bradley (WR), Tony Bradford Jr. (DL), Jaylon Hutchings (DL), Austin McNamara (P), Krishon Merriweather (LB), Landon Peterson (OL), Myles Price (WR), SaRodorick Thompson Jr. (RB), Henry Teeter (FB), Marquis Waters (DB), Dennis Wilburn (OL), Rayshad Williams (DB) and Wolff (K) were each named All-Big 12 honorable mention.
