FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas offensive lineman Denver Kirkland has been named a preseason first team All-American by Sporting News.

The university announced Monday that the football team’s tackle picked up the honor. Kirkland enters his junior season with 21 consecutive starts. He started his career at right guard before moving to left tackle this offseason.

The Miami native participated in more than 750 snaps in 2014 and allowed just one sack. He was penalized only three times.

The Razorbacks will host the University of Texas at El Paso Miners on Sept. 5 to kick off the 2015 season.
