University of South Carolina senior defensive lineman Melvin Ingram was named first-team All-SEC by the league's coaches, it was announced today. Ingram was named an AFCA All-American and Associated Press first-team team All-SEC performer on Monday.

Three Gamecocks - senior offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins, sophomore running back Marcus Lattimore and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, earned second team honors, according to the 12 SEC coaches. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own players.

SEC Western Division runner-up Alabama and SEC Champion LSU had the most representatives on the 2011 All-Southeastern Conference Coaches' Football Team. Alabama had 11 total members, while LSU had 10.

Seven of the 12 SEC schools had a member on the first-team All-SEC squad. LSU and Alabama both led with six members on the first team, while Arkansas had five.

Arkansas' Joe Adams made the first team twice - once as a return specialist and once at the all-purpose position. Marquis Maze of Alabama was also recognized at two positions on the second team. Jadeveon Clowney (South Carolina) and Brad Wing (LSU) were the only freshmen to make the squad.

The SEC individual award winners will be released on Wednesday and the SEC All-Freshman Team will be announced on Thursday.
