Michigan freshman guard Trey Burke had a record-setting freshman season and he's capped it off in a way no one has at Michigan in over a decade.

He is on an Associated Press All-American list.

Burke was named an Associated Press honorable mention All-American on Monday, becoming the first All-American for the Wolverines since Robert Traylor and Louis Bullock were named honorable mention in 1998.

The last Michigan players to be named to either the first, second or third AP All-American teams were Juwan Howard and Jalen Rose in 1994.

The Columbus, Ohio native led Michigan in scoring and assists this season with 14.8 points a game and 156 assists, a freshman record at the school.

Burke is currently looking into whether or not to declare for this season's NBA Draft.
