On Thursday afternoon, Phil Steele of Phil Steel’s College Football Preview released his 2022 Preseason All-America Team, and he included three Wisconsin Badgers.

Outside linebacker Nick Herbig was the only Badger to make the first team, which is not surprising since he led Wisconsin in sacks last season. He was also added to the Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List less than a month ago.

Sophomore running back Braelon Allen and senior nose tackle Keeanu Benton were named to Steele’s fourth team, after both finishing last year as second-team All-Big Ten.

I am excited to see what Herbig and Benton will do after taking the reins of the Badgers’ defense, and of course, expectations are high for Allen after his outstanding freshman season.
