Maryland defensive lineman Joe Vellano and tight end Matt Furstenburg were named to the preseason all-ACC team by a vote of conference media.
Vellano was a first team all-ACC selection last year while making 94 tackles (7.5 for loss). Furstenburg had 31 receptions for 348 yards and two touchdowns as a junior.
Only two other Terrapins – punters Nick Ferrara (two votes) and Brad Craddock (one vote) – ranked in the top four of the voting at any position.
