COLUMBIA -- Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson has earned first team all Southeastern Conference honors by the Associated Press.
Richardson tied for second on the team with 75 tackles. He made four sacks, forced three fumbles, recovered two fumbles, and blocked one kick. Last week, Missouri announced Richardson, a junior, will leave the Tigers early to enter the April NFL draft. He is projected as a first round pick.
No other tiger earned all-SEC first or second team honors, or even received honorable mention.
