The All-American wealth has spread across the land. The Pac-12 leads the conferences with seven, one more than the SEC. Dual-threat QB Marcus Mariota and RB Lache Seastrunk both originally signed with Oregon. Now that Seastrunk plays for Baylor, he and Mariota no longer have to share a backfield. Seastrunk and G Cyril Richardson make the Bears the only team with two on offense. Richardson is surely the first All-American named Cyril, but Lache is not the first body of water to make it. He joins 1939 Heisman winner Nile Kinnick.

Alabama has won three of the past four BCS titles with defense and placed LB C.J. Mosley and S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on this team. Alabama and Oregon lead with three players apiece on the list. That's one more than the Big Ten and two more than the ACC and Conference USA. -- Ivan Maisel

For years, Michael Snaer searched for his swagger.

The Moreno Valley, Calif., native used that bravado to elevate his game in high school and earn multiple scholarship offers (Snaer, class of 2009, was rated No. 22 overall by RecruitingNation). The fearlessness fueled the buzz surrounding the Florida State guard’s arrival three years ago.

Although he averaged 14.0 ppg, made 40 percent of his 3-pointers and hit a pair of game-winners last season, Snaer said he questioned his potential in his first three seasons.

But the confidence he lost has returned, he said, thanks to a pair of standout performances at this summer’s LeBron James and Kevin Durant skills academies.

“I’ve been believing in myself and now, I’m at a point now, I feel like if I’m not the best, I’m one of the best two-guards in the country,” Snaer told ESPN.com. “I strongly feel that way. I’ve been up against all the guys at [LeBron’s camp], where you see all the guys at your position.
