Ole Miss junior offensive lineman Greg Little garnered his third All-America honor this postseason after being named second-team All-American by Sporting News on Tuesday.

The Allen, Texas native anchored the Ole Miss offensive line, appearing in every game at left tackle for the last three seasons. Heralded as one of the top NFL Draft prospects for 2019, Little has already garnered second-team All-America honors from the Football Writers Association of America and the Walter Camp Foundation. He was also a first-team All-SEC selection by the Associated Press and league coaches.

He is one of six finalists for the 2018 Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, becoming the first offensive lineman ever to be named a finalist for the Texas-specific award.

Little was part of an Ole Miss offensive line that helped protect one of the top offensive units in the country. Ole Miss ranks ninth in the country in total offense and fifth in passing yards. Little was a key anchor on the left side of the line that paved the way for running back Scottie Phillips, who ranks second in the SEC with 14 total touchdowns.
