Led by three-time selections Corey Adams and Tysyn Hartman, Kansas State recorded the second-most Academic All-Big 12 selections in program history when 14 Wildcat football players were named to the 2010 squad Thursday.
Seven student-athletes each were named to the first and second teams, while the 14 total selections were three shy of the school record of 17, which was set back in 2000.
K-State, which has led the Big 12 in all-sports and football graduation rates for the past four years, now has had 27 Academic All-Big 12 picks in the last two seasons, and a total of 121 under head coach Bill Snyder.
Kansas State running back Daniel Thomas and safety Tysyn Hartman have been named to Phil Steele's preseason All-Big 12 football teams released Wednesday by the publication.
A Doak Walker Award and All-America candidate, Thomas was named to the magazine's All-Big 12 first team after leading the conference in rushing in 2009.
Hartman, a third team selection by Phil Steele, was an All-Big 12 performer at safety in 2009 and was also an Academic All-Big 12 and All-District VII pick for a program that has led the Big 12 in graduation rate in each of the last three years.
